There are several ways in which to protect yourself and your family in the event of an untimely death. Most people take out life insurance to provide for their families and alleviate any financial worries at a difficult time. Life assurance plans can provide lump sums or income on death, to replace a deceased person’s income and can be set up to pay off debts, such as mortgages or other loans.

These types of plans generally allow for a lump sum benefit to be paid in the event of diagnosis of certain critical illnesses, such as Heart Attack, Stroke, Transplant, Blindness, Total & Permanent Disability and so on. The plans can also be used to again pay off debts and help with the undoubted changes to circumstances and lifestyles when such an illness occurs.
Business & Commercial Insurance:
Businesses may want to protect the key employees within their firm – perhaps the key salesperson, or the IT manager without whom the business will not function properly. Key person protection can provide a fixed sum should the individual be unable work, or even die. The benefit will be designed to cover the firm’s expenses in meeting any emergency costs, recruiting a replacement employee and protecting the future of the business.
Similarly, if a key shareholder or director was to pass away, the firms remaining shareholders or directors may want to purchase the deceased’s shares from their estate promptly to maintain control of their business.
