Group Life and Protection
Business growth is not just about increasing business activity and making greater profits. It’s also about maximising the investments you make with those profits and securing the successful continuity of the business.
Protecting yourself and your workforce
In an uncertain world, many businesses want to protect themselves and their staff against the financial impact of ill health or an untimely death.
We have extensive experience in working with companies and is able to arrange competitive cover for employers who wish to offer insurance such as:
- Group Life Insurance and Death in Service cover
- Group Critical Illness cover
- Group Income Protection cover, providing either short or long term sick pay for those unable to work
The cost of installing a scheme is often far less than an employer expects and cover is highly valued by workers. Group arrangements may also be a cost-effective way of getting insurance for senior employees who already have been diagnosed with medical conditions.
Putting the right insurance in place may help a business as much as it helps the staff. For example, private medical cover will ensure your workers are diagnosed and treated promptly, subject to any exemptions, aiding a swift return to healthy work. Many group income protection arrangements include occupational health services that can aid employees’ rehabilitation.
Protecting your senior staff
We can assist companies who want to protect the business against the financial impact if a director, partner or senior manager falls ill or dies.
Key person insurance will provide funds to the business to hire a temporary replacement or recruit a long term successor. Business and shareholder covers can make lump sums available to the remaining business owners to buy out a partnership interest or a shareholding. We can also help with the necessary trust and legal arrangements to ensure such cover delivers the maximum benefit.
