Keyperson cover is designed to help protect the business in the event of death or severe illness of one or more key employees.
Who is covered?
The policy is taken out by the business on the life of the individual. A keyperson is an employee or individual whose skills, knowledge, experience or leadership are important to the success and continuity of the business. If the key person were to die or suffer from a severe illness during the policy term, the policy pays out a lump sum for any loss in your revenue or profits, helping to keep your business on track.
The benefits are paid out to the business, and are commonly used to repay loans, replace lost profits, cover the cost of recruiting a replacement of the key person.
