Group Life Insurance Cover
What is Group Life Insurance?
Group Life Insurance Cover (also referred to as Death in Service Benefit) is designed to provide financial protection for your employee’s loved ones in the event of their death, whilst under your employment.
Group Life Assurance provides a tax free lump sum (normally up to 4 times the gross salary), which can be written in trust and does therefore not form part of the employee’s estate. If it is not setup in a trust, it would be included in the legal process known as grant of probate, which could take six months or more to release any payment.
- Provides a tax free lump sum (normally up to 4 times the gross salary)
- Can be written in trust so it does not form part of the employee’s estate
- Premiums are based on your company’s location & average age of your employees
- Financial protection for employee’s loved ones in the event of their death.
The premiums vary from each insurer and will differ based on various factors such as a risk assessment of your location and the average age of your employees.

Main Benefits to Employees
"They have always managed to find us the best coverage at very competitive prices."
The main benefits for your employees are:
- Enjoying peace of mind that their family will be taken care of financially should the worst happen,
- A tax free lump sum paid out to dependents during an extremely difficult time.
In some circumstances, staff members may prefer to take out an individual policy, rather than be part of a group scheme. The policy is then portable which means if they ever leave the company, they can take the policy with them.
The next step . . .
