What is key person protection?
Key person insurance helps safeguard a business against the financial effects of the death or critical illness of a key member of staff. It’s designed to provide a financial buffer in the event of a person who is key to your company’s operation and success becoming permanently or temporarily unable to make their normal contribution to the business. Proceeds would generally be used to replace the lost profits to the business or perhaps hire a replacement. Most businesses will be able to identify a few key people who, if they were suddenly removed from employment, would cause a financial shock and cash flow issue.
Who is a key person?
Key persons are any individuals whose knowledge, relationships, skills or leadership make an important contribution to a business’s continuing success. This can be equally as important to small businesses as larger entities.
Determining the level of cover
Quantifying the level of cover required to mitigate the risk of the loss of a key person can be difficult, and this is an area that we can support and give advice in. It can reflect the estimated loss of income to the business, for example the loss of profit that would have been made by a key salesperson. It can also include issues such as the cost of finding, hiring and training someone to the same level as that of the lost employee.

Thank you for the great service that you provided for me in sorting my critical illness cover. Having a busy workload at this time of year, Barry came to my home at a time to suit me and gave me some advice on what would be best suited to my needs. From my first dealings through to the finished documents I felt at ease knowing that all the staff had one thing on their mind in getting me the best advice possible and trying to make it as stress free as possible. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommend Watts Mortgages services to any of our clients/family and friends. Thanks once again.
