Who is the beneficiary under a Key Man Life Insurance Policy?

Page Views: 340



If my company buys a key man insurance policy, will the benefits (in the case of death/injuries of the key man) be paid to the company both as the policy owner and the beneficiary ?


Key Man Life Insurance plans are normally obtained for the benefit of a specific company, allowing normal operations to continue should a key employee pass away.

As the name implies, a Key ManLife Insurance product is specifically designed to protect an organization against the loss of a vital member of staff. The benefits received from a Key Man policy will ensure that a company has sufficient funding to continue operations whilst overcoming the loss of that employee, and will often be used towards hiring a new member of staff to take over from the deceased employee.

An alternative option, which will provide a benefit to individuals involved in the operation of the company should a key employee pass away, is called Shareholder Protection Life Insurance. In this instance, shareholders would be the beneficiaries from a situation where a key employee dies and the company is dealing with overcoming that loss.

Generally, however, Key Man products are designed to protect the company as a whole (and not specific individuals in the organization) against the loss of a key employee.
