Keyman Insurance

Why is keyman insurance important?

Keyman insurance is a specialist type of cover that protects a business in the event of a crucial member of staff becoming unable to work due to critical illness or death. Sometimes also called keyperson insurance, for some businesses keyman insurance can be the difference between business failure and survival.

What is keyman insurance?

Often, a business relies heavily on the skill, knowledge, and performance of an individual (the ‘key person’) who contributes significantly to the revenue and profitability of the business. This could be a director, senior manager, or any other employee, who, if they were unable to work or if they passed away, would result in a disastrous impact on business activity or profitability.

Keyman insurance offers a lump sum payment to the business, to cover the cost of replacing the staff member or director, or to cover retraining costs, or offset the loss of revenue and profits from the loss. If the business had to claim on their keyman insurance, they could receive a tax-free lump sum amount to cover the deficit.

Key person definition

Keyman insurance should not be taken out against all members of staff: the premiums alone would mean it was not a cost-efficient decision. The business needs keyman insurance only if the individual plays a significant role in the financial performance of the business. You need to consider how expensive it would be to replace them or the impact on profitability before you take out keyman insurance against them.
