Payout is made if the policy holder dies during the specified term.
Whole life is a type of permanent life insurance. Its advantages include guaranteed death benefits, guaranteed cash values, fixed and guaranteed premiums.

If you are looking for life insurance built on a foundation of stable investment returns from year-to-year, whole life insurance may be the right product for you.
Universal life is an all-in-one product that combines life insurance with a tax-deferred investment account. Its advantages include greater premium flexibility, potential for higher internal rate of return, cash value is considered more attainable since the owner can discontinue premiums if the cash value allows it, and there is more flexibility for the death benefit payout.

RESP contributions are not tax-deductible but they do allow savings to compound and grow tax-free until the child is ready for full-time college, university, or another post-secondary educational institution.
