Take Care of Your Key Executives
Protect your business and your executives with Key Person insurance in the event of the unexpected death or disability of a valuable key employee.
Key personnel who suffer an illness or injury can lead to an additional strain on the owner of a business. The business may experience loss of sales and competitive edge, loss of confidence of suppliers, and expend a large amount of money and time to find a replacement. Additionally, because typical group insurance only covers a fraction of a key executive’s high income, you’ll also be able to adequately protect key people and their families from loss.
Following are examples of ways we can protect your high-earning, valuable key executives and your business.
Key Person (Key Man) Life Insurance protects your business if one of the main partners passes away unexpectedly, and helps to minimize financial loss. Your business is typically responsible for the premiums, as it is also the beneficiary. The value of your business (as established through financial records) will help to determine the benefit level and premium amounts.
A Business Overhead Disability policy prevents businesses from going under from regular overhead expenses while the business owner is unable to work and run the business due to disability. These types of policies will typically pay for things like employee salaries, rent and utilities, among other expenses.
Buy-Sell Agreements protect a business after the death of a key employee. Also, known as Continuation Agreements, they are tied to and funded by life insurance policies. The agreement sets out the details of the transfer of business interest by the key-person (or his/her estate) upon a certain triggering event–usually death, disability and retirement. The surviving or continuing business owner or partner can rest assured knowing that they will be able to purchase the key-person share without interference from other survivors of the key person and his/her estate
