Group Life Insurance
Group Life Insurance is essentially life insurance for your employees which means that if they die in service, a tax free lump sum is paid out to their family.
Group life policies are usually written in Trust so that it is ultimately the Trustees decision to whom any benefits are paid.
By placing the policy in Trust, the cash sum can be paid out promptly to the employee's beneficiaries.
The life insurance premiums are paid by the employer so they are not subject to income tax. Any lump sum paid out to the beneficiaries is not subject to Inheritance Tax.
How much will premiums cost?
Several factors will need to be taken into consideration when compiling a comprehensive quote for an employer:
- The average age of your work force - the older they are, the greater the risk so premiums may be more expensive.
- How much cover is required. Some employers choose 2 x salary, others up to 12 x salary. The level of cover can also vary according to position within the company.
- Some companies will look at the location of your business in determining risk.
