Product overview

Advantage Plus from Foresters offers solid protection, a range of attractive options and benefits, the flexibility to meet changing needs, and the opportunity to contribute to your favourite registered charity with our Charity Benefit provision.5

Advantage Plus provides a tax-free death benefit6 that can protect the financial security of your loved ones in the event of an untimely death. In addition, the cash value of your Advantage Plus certificate grows over time and can be accessed either by withdrawing money directly from the certificate or by requesting a certificate loan.7

As a participating product, Advantage Plus provides the opportunity to earn dividends. Depending on the option you choose, these dividends can be:

  • Paid to you in cash
  • Used to purchase additional insurance that can be added to the death benefit and contribute to growth in cash value
  • Left as "dividends on deposit" to earn interest
  • Used to pay or reduce premiums

Foresters Financial provides financial solutions and services to help today's families achieve financial security and make a lasting difference in their lives and communities.
