Your home is your haven – the place where you live, breathe, create and play! By protecting your home you protect your family and their lifestyle. With RMG Mortgages, you can rest easier knowing that you have taken steps to give security to your family’s future in case of illness, injury or death.

When an unexpected loss of life occurs, this protection is tailored to possibly discharge your mortgage and potentially provide your family a mortgage free home. The death of a loved one can have a large financial impact on the whole family. It is important to have peace of mind in knowing that they won’t have to give up their home, should you no longer be there to take care of it. (The maximum coverage available to you is $750,000 for Life and $4,000 in monthly mortgage payments for Disability Insurance).

In the event of illness or injury, the last thing you should have to worry about is your mortgage. After all, a disabling injury or illness can leave you off work for long periods of time; this protection will help you continue to pay down your mortgage while you focus on your recovery and return to work. Provided you meet the definition of disability, disability benefits can last up to two years per claim depending on how long you find yourself off work.

With Secure Start, we can help protect one of your most valuable assets — your home. This can help you provide the coverage you need during what may be a life - altering health event.
