Does your business include someone whose contribution is vital to the survival of your company? If yes, then key person insurance should be a part of your business continuity and succession plan, especially if you’re a small business owner. If a key person on your team passes away or becomes disabled, your bottom line may suffer in the short-term, and over the long-term, you may have to find a replacement or even shut down your business. However, with the benefits payable from a key person life insurance or disability insurance plan, you could:
  • Recruit, hire and train a replacement for your key member.
  • Pay off debt and deal with creditors.
  • Alleviate lenders’ concerns about your company’s financial health.
  • Reassure customers, employees and investors that the business will continue operating.
What’s more, if you and your family rely on your business as a primary source of income, key person insurance can help ensure that the business will continue to provide a secure financial future.
