What is key person insurance?

Key person insurance, or key man insurance as it is sometimes known, is a business insurance product that protects companies from the loss or illness of an important individual within the organisation. These policies are taken out on individuals who are integral to the financial stability of the company, and whose illness or death would lead to substantial losses. If the worst does happen, key person insurance will pay out a sum of money to the business calculated based on earnings, enabling the business to weather the storm, maintain cashflow and cover the cost of hiring and training a replacement.

What can key person cover be used for?

Key person cover is used to compensate for losses and disruption in the event that a critical company breadwinner becomes ill or dies. It can be used to hire and train a replacement, repay debts like company mortgages or cover the cost of winding up the business. If you think your people and profits need protecting, our friendly team can help you identify the business insurance policy best suited to your situation. Contact us today!

Key person insurance FAQs.

Yes, it is possible. At When the Bank Says No, we have access to specialist insurers who offer cover on a case by case basis. This means the products are more bespoke, and can be tailored to your circumstances. If you’ve been declined before because your key person has an existing condition or for some other lifestyle factor, we can step in and help you navigate the market. We’ll discuss your company’s needs and you or your employee’s medical history with sensitivity and discretion before helping you make an informed choice.

If the key person insurance is to safeguard the continuity of the business, then the premiums are usually tax deductible, although certain criteria must be met. For example, the cover must be taken out on an employee who is not a shareholder in the business, as the premiums should be paid exclusively for the business’ benefit. If you have to make a claim at some point in the future, however, the benefit will face taxation. To fully understand the tax implications, make sure you get advice from your accountant.
