When a key person in a business dies it can have a devastating effect on the company financially. You can protect your business against the death, terminal or critical illness of a key person with this insurance.
What is Key Person Protection? Key Person Protection (also known as key man insurance) is a business insuring itself against the financial loss it would suffer if a key person in your business should die or suffer a critical illness, during the length of the policy. It could also pays out if the key person is terminally ill and meets the plans criteria, except in the last 12 months of the policy.
How does Key Person Protection Work? Key Person Protection is a life assurance or life assurance and critical illness cover policy taken out to cover the life of a key person within your business. The policy is owned and paid for by the employer, so any pay out is payable to the employer.
Why do I need Key Person Protection? The loss of a key person in your business could have a huge impact with sales and profits falling and increased workloads for the remaining staff. Ultimately as with all insurance, it offers an element of peace of mind for you and your business.
Key Person Protection is designed to pay out a lump sum on the death of the insured key person, during the length of the policy. It could significantly help the business to recover with the proceeds being used to help replace lost profit or finding and hiring a replacement.
Do you have something specific you'd like to save for? Perhaps your children's education, maybe to cover the cost of a child's wedding or an investment to help them get started on the property ladder? You might already have investments or Instant Savings Accounts's (ISA's) in place but are unsure how they are performing and if there are better options available. You might also be aware of guaranteed options that offer more certainty by maximising growth potential while also protecting your money against market downturns.
Pensions, Retirement & Future Income Planning (FIP)
We're amazed at how many people simply don't have a plan in place to provide a income for themselves and their families when they stop working. What's more, people are unaware how much they will need in retirement, how long it will last and how to fill any potential shortfall. With people living longer and continued uncertainty with state pensions it's important to know all you're options so arrange a free no obligation face to face or telephone appointment today.
If you do have some pension/retirement plans in place then we'd be delighted to review them for you to ensure they are still suitable and on track. This can also include looking at options if you are 55+ to access 25% Tax Free Cash.
The amount of tax you pay will depend on your level of income and what can be offset against it. This can include various expenses as-well as tax relief on pension contributions. Inheritance Tax Planning is also extremely important as it will ultimately be the responsibility of the beneficiary of any assets left to them by others. If you think you might receive an inheritance or want to ensure your assets are left to loved ones in the most tax efficient manner then we can help.
