As someone who frequently talks about life insurance, I always hear the phrase ” I won’t be the one benefitting from this, my kids (or husband/wife) will.” But Manulife is changing that; they have now created a product that rewards you…while you’re still alive! 

A year ago, Manulife introduced a new type of insurance policy called “Vitality” that utilizes health and fitness technology, and rewards policy holders for making healthy decisions. The more proactive you are with your health by exercising, getting the flu shot, going to the dentist, and so on, the more points you will earn. At the end of each year, if you have accumulated enough points, your rates can go down. On top of that, you can get a discount at Goodlife, Amazon gift cards, a Garmin Vivofit…and the list continues to grow. Not only are you encouraged to become healthier, it is also making the life insurance process far more interactive. 

They have now sweetened the pot even further by offering an Apple Watch for a minimal cost to anyone with a Vitality policy! The cost of the watch fluctuates based on how many activity points you collect throughout each month. If you collect enough points for the month, the watch is free. As someone who has bought the policy, and the Apple Watch, I have found it extremely motivating to get my workouts in! 

If you want to get something out of your life insurance while you are alive, and be rewarded for a healthy lifestyle, call us to learn more about the Manulife Vitality Program.
