Canada Life wishes to assure its valued members that receiving the Covid-19 vaccine will not affect your individual or workplace life, health or disability insurance benefits.
Please note that when a COVID-19 vaccine has been given by an authorized health professional, side-effects or complications from the vaccine would not limit someone’s eligibility for group benefits.
Government-approved COVID-19 vaccinations are tested to make sure they’re safe and effective and while some people have reported side effects after being immunized with a COVID-19 vaccine in Canada, those side effects aren’t necessarily related to the vaccine.
The Canadian Life and Health Insurance Association (CLHIA) has also released their position on the vaccine as it relates to insurance coverage.
Canada Life stays committed to the financial, physical and mental well-being of its plan members.
