Frequently asked questions

 

1. How is Critical Accident Insurance different from Accident Disability Insurance?

The TD Critical Accident Recovery Plan provides a lump sum benefit to support you and your family financially while you recover from a covered accident.

On the other hand, the TD Accident Disability Insurance Plan provides a benefit if you become disabled within 90 days of an eligible accident. Benefits are paid to you monthly to help replace lost income.

2. What are some losses covered under the TD Critical Accident Recovery Plan? 

Some examples of eligible critical accidents covered under this plan includes specified broken bone, loss of both hands, loss of both feet, burns to 20% of the body, and loss of entire eyesight in both eyes.

For defined terms, limitations and exclusions, refer to the Insurance Certificate.

3. If hospital stays are covered under my provincial plan, how will this insurance plan benefit me?

The hospital benefit under your TD Critical Accident Recovery Plan goes directly to you to use as you choose – it does not go to  doctors or hospitals, and you can use this money to pay for things such as your bills, groceries or to help cover lost wages.

4. How much Critical Accident Insurance do I need?

The amount of coverage you need depends on your specific circumstances. A first step you can take to find out how much coverage you need is to determine how much money your loved ones would need to support you financially while you recover from a Critical Accident that's covered in your insurance certificate. You can consider factors such as:

  • Lost income
  • Outstanding loans and debts
  • Your children’s education costs and
  • Your family’s lifestyle.
