What would happen if a key employee, say your general manager of a restaurant, or the estimator of a roofing company were to pass away?  You would lose business, customers, and the business would suffer a key financial loss.

This is why your business needs to know about key person insurance

Key person insurance is life insurance on the key person in a business, without whom the business would struggle.  In our examples above the business would take out life insurance on the life of the employee be it the General Manager of the restaurant or the estimator of the roofing company.

The business is the owner and beneficiary of the life insurance policy and is paid if the employee dies.   Key person insurance can be funded by either term or whole life insurance and should be discussed with a licensed insurance agent regarding your specific situation.
