What is business life insurance?

This specific type of life insurance protects your business's finances if something unforeseen, such as a death, happens to you, your staff, or a senior stakeholder. The policy is built to provide the company with a death benefit for the amount estimated of the expected revenue loss and any additional costs needed to replace this person. Many business life insurance policies are referred to as "keyperson" insurance, but there are other policies that could also fit your needs.

Types of business life insurance policies:

  • Keyperson - A person who is key to ensuring the business continues to operate smoothly; typically a CEO, CFO, Vice President, or other key operational leadership positions.
  • Buy-Sell - An agreement between two or more parties that defines what happens if/when one party decides to leave the business or passes away.
  • Loan Collateral - Taken out by the Insured in conjunction with a loan from a bank or other lender. The life insurance policy is being used as collateral for a business loan. The purpose of the policy is to repay the lender any amount still owed on the loan should the Insured pass away before the loan is paid off.
  • Employee Benefit - These policies are taken out by small businesses who lack the ability or personnel to offer life insurance as a group benefit.
