When you buy a home, you want security to go with it. Mortgage life insurance1 can help protect what’s likely one of your family’s most important assets by helping to provide financial protection for your mortgage in the event of your death.


Key benefits


Your CIBC Mortgage balance is reduced or paid off up to $750,000.

Instant coverage

On-the-spot approval with coverage beginning immediately if you're eligible to apply and answer “No” to the health questions on the insurance application and your CIBC Mortgage is approved.


You don’t need to make separate payments for your insurance premiums — they're added to your mortgage payment and automatically adjusted if you change the frequency of your CIBC Mortgage payment.

Prior coverage recognition

If you're declined for insurance coverage on your new mortgage but you had insurance coverage on the mortgage loan you paid out, you may be eligible to have a portion of your new mortgage insured under “Prior coverage recognition.”
