    Getting older has many drawbacks: a body that has seen better days, lower energy levels, health problems, etc. There are, however, also good news associated with the passage of time, i.e. wisdom, more free time, more financial freedom to actualize your dreams, and bonified car and home insurance protection! Indeed, as soon as they reach 50, Quebecers can join the Fédération de l’âge d’or du Québec (FADOQ) and enjoy a multitude of rebates and privileges, even when it comes to insurance! Assurances Multi-Risques would like to tell you more about Intact Insurance’s LibrEspace FADOQ program so that you can take advantage of all the perks associated with getting older.

    Is the Intact Insurance LibrEspace FADOQ program advantageous for everybody ?

    The advantages offered by Intact Insurance are indeed very interesting, and Assurances Multi-Risques invites some of its clients to take advantage of them! You must know, however, that many other car and home insurers offer similar perks. Although, we at Assurances Multi-Risques are persuaded that the program is useful, we think that certain clients might be better served by other insurers because of their profile and location.

     

    Contact an independent insurance broker who does business with many insurance companies and who can compare various insurance packages in order to find the best fit to your specific situation and needs. If are currently insured with Intact Insurance and are 50 and over, make sure to become a member of the FADOQ (either through your agent or through an Assurances Multi-Risques broker) in order to be able to take advantage of the LibrEspace FADOQ program.

     

    Growing older is not a choice, but choosing the best insurer for your needs is! We also recommend that you contact an Assurances Multi-Risques broker in order to minimize the stress associated with changing car and home insurance companies, and to make this experience as enjoyable as possible. By doing this, you will have more time to freely enjoy your life !
