Relevant Life Insurance

Relevant life insurance is a policy designed for businesses that want to provide life cover for individual employees. Read on to discover why this may be a suitable protection product for your business.

How does relevant life insurance work?

Relevant life insurance is an alternative way to provide death-in-service benefits for employees. In the event of an employee’s death whilst the plan is in place, a lump sum will be paid out to their family. Terminal illness cover may also be included in the policy, in which case a pay-out could be made if the employee is diagnosed with a terminal illness and has a life expectancy of less than twelve months.

A Smart Choice for Smaller Businesses

Looking for an affordable way to offer valuable life insurance to your employees, even without a large group scheme? Relevant life insurance might be the perfect solution.

Here’s why it’s gaining traction:

  • Cost-effective: Ideal for smaller businesses, it provides employee death benefits without burdening them with premiums. The company covers the cost, often treated as a deductible business expense.
  • Tax-efficient: Both employers and employees benefit from favourable tax treatment, making it a win-win.
  • Competitive advantage: Attract and retain top talent by offering this sought-after employee benefit, setting your business apart.

Key features:

  • Company-owned policy: The business holds the policy, with benefits flowing to the employee’s chosen beneficiary upon death.
  • Limited coverage: Typically covers a multiple of the employee’s salary, ensuring financial support for loved ones.
  • Termination clause: Coverage usually ends when the employee leaves the company.

Relevant life insurance can offer valuable protection and peace of mind for your employees while remaining budget-friendly for your business. We can work with you to explore this option and potentially elevate your employee benefits package.
