Key Person Protection

Most businesses have at least one key person who keeps the ship on course. This individual is essential to the company’s operations, making it nearly impossible to imagine the engine humming without them. The key person may be a founder, manager, or even a critical employee — anyone whose departure would seriously compromise the future success of the company. Unfortunately, the unexpected can happen, and businesses need a way to protect themselves in the event of a key person’s premature death.

Key person protection offers a solution to help businesses cover their costs in these instances. This type of business insurance is like securing life insurance for businesses. It covers operating costs to provide businesses with the time and resources they need to recruit, train, and replace the lost key individual. Getting a quote for key person protection safeguards the future of businesses, particularly those that require certain individuals to continue operating.
