What Is Key Person Life Insurance?

Key person life insurance is a type of policy that a business purchases for the life of an owner, a top executive, or another individual considered critical to the business. The company is the beneficiary of the policy and pays the premiums.

The purpose of key person life insurance is to protect the business from financial loss or dissolution if that employee dies. The death benefit from the policy can be used to:


Pay for the cost of hiring and training a replacement employee


Offset lost revenue until a replacement employee is hired


Cover the cost of lost contracts or business opportunities


Provide financial assistance to the key employee’s family

Finding the Right Key Person Life Insurance

The amount of insurance coverage that a business needs depends on a number of factors, such as:

The Value of the Employee’s Role in the Business

This includes the employee’s salary, commissions, and other forms of compensation, as well as the value of their expertise, experience, and contributions.

Cost of Hiring and Training a Replacement

This includes the cost of advertising, recruiting, and interviewing candidates, as well as the cost of training the new employee.

Lost Revenue

If the employee dies, consider the amount of money the company would lose, including any loss of sales, profits, productivity, or content generation.

Financial Resources

The business should be able to afford the premiums for the key person life insurance policy and justify the expense when compared with revenue and other expenses.

Type of Policy

There are two main types of key person life insurance policies: term life insurance and permanent life insurance. 

Post-Mortem Considerations

If things go wrong, the payout could be utilized to gradually shut down operations in an organized way instead of dealing with the challenges of an abrupt liquidation.

Key Person Life Insurance Benefits
