Key Person or Key Man Insurance

Key Person Disruptions to your Business 

Business owners, key executives, and important employees invest significant time and effort in acquiring the knowledge, experience, skills, reputation, and relationships that make them invaluable to the business. However, if one of these key individuals were to pass away, become disabled, or fall critically ill, the business would lose a crucial member of its team, leading to severe financial consequences.

During the disruption that follows the death, disability, or critical illness of a key player several things can happen within a business:

  • The business will suffer from the loss of knowledge, expertise, and management capability.
  • Lenders may cut back on credit.
  • Creditors may press for immediate payment of outstanding debt.
  • Debtors may delay making payments.
  • Employees and customers may lose confidence in the business.
  • Competitors may take advantage of the unfortunate business situation.

Unfortunately, the process of finding a Key Person replacement after losses such as death, disability, or critical illness, can cause business delays, further disruptions, and reduced efficiency, ultimately weakening the financial stability of the company. However, if the business has implemented a well-thought-out Key Person Insurance Plan prior to experiencing such a loss, the impact of this situation can be significantly reduced. 


The Solution to Your Business Disruptions

Fortunately, the possibility of the death, disability or critical illness of a key person is a contingency or risk that can be insured!

A Key Person or Key Man succession business plan should include the purchase of Insurance policies for the death, disability, or critical illness of a key player to ensure that there will be immediate cash to cover the business’s working capital needs as well as to find and train a suitable replacement for the person lost. The value of these benefits to the business should far exceed the cost of the insurance!
