KEY PERSON INSURANCE – CORNERSTONE
KEY PERSON INSURANCE IN ALBERTA
Many business owners overlook one of their most important assets when seeking commercial insurance: human resources.
Depending on the type of business you operate, your employees may be the most important asset in your business. Your business is built on their skills, knowledge, and daily work. Are you protected against losing key personnel? What would you do if your key employees suddenly became ill and unable to work?
Key Person Insurance (also known as Key Man Insurance) is designed to insure you against losses to staff or personnel. It protects your organization’s most valuable employee(s) from unforeseeable circumstances that prevent them from working. This ensures that you’ll have business continuity, no matter what happens. Failure to have key person insurance in place may cause irreparable damages to your business due to your key employees’ incapacity to work.
PROTECT YOUR KEY PERSONNEL WITH THE BEST KEY PERSON INSURANCE
You already have business insurance to protect most of your assets and cover claims related to your physical location and work. However, even a robust business insurance policy is unlikely to protect the people your business depends on.
As a business owner, one of your main responsibilities is to ensure that your employees are performing effectively. If you have employees that your business largely depends on, you need to have a key person insurance policy. This includes any critical health conditions or disabilities your key employees may suffer, rendering them incapable of fulfilling their duties.
The main factors our experienced key person insurance broker will consider to determine your policy may include:
- the length of the insurance coverage term
- the amount of coverage
- the age of the individual
- the gender of the individual
- whether the individual is a smoker or non-smoker
- the general health status of the key employee(s) to be insured
Key person insurance policies can cover a wide range of conditions including disability, critical illness, and death. Coverages can be term or permanent policies, depending on your business’ needs. Typically, key person insurance policies are written to cover five times the income of the individual insured. While conditions may vary depending on the company’s needs and budget, our goal is to get you the best key person insurance. We’ll source a policy that’s well worth your investment.
WHAT DOES KEY PERSON INSURANCE INCLUDE?
Key person insurance is intended to help you manage the financial losses associated with the loss of a key person in your business. This may include coverage for financial losses while you find a replacement employee, short-term disability insurance, and key person life insurance.
