Individual Life & Disability
Life insurance is an important feature of many business arrangements. Some of its more important uses are as follows:
Funding buy-sell agreements
Insuring a key employee
Guaranteeing a business loan
Funding a buy-sell agreement with life insurance
Owners of a closely held corporation generally want to retain control over the stock or partnership interests to prevent ownership interests from falling into the wrong hands. A buy-sell agreement allows the owners of a C or S corporation or a partnership to restrict the transfer of ownership interests.
One problem with buy-sell agreements is how to obtain funds to purchase the stock or partnership interest of a deceased shareholder. Life insurance is a preferred method of funding a buy-sell agreement.
Life or disability insurance coverage on a key employee
Key employee life or disability insurance provides funds to help a business cover expenses and financial losses caused by the sudden or unexpected death or disability of a key employee.
Business credit life insurance
If a business is borrowing money and does not have significant assets or the lender perceives that the business relies heavily on the talents of one or a few individuals, the lender will often require a borrower to guarantee a loan. Business credit life insurance guarantees repayment through a life insurance policy on the life of the owner or key employees.
