How Life Insurance Helps your Business

A business life insurance plan can help to protect your business and employees when it comes to an unexpected death. It can be provided as an employee benefit to retain and hire loyal, high-calibre employees. A life insurance policy can also be established to financially protect your business. In the event of a death, a lump sum can be paid out to the owners to help maintain financial stability. It can help to cover the loss of profits, recruitment, training and any other associated costs to keep your business afloat.

How do I know which Business Life Insurance policy is right for me?

Choosing the right Business Life Insurance policy for you can be a difficult task. It also depends on your specific circumstances, existing policies and individual health information.

That’s why our advisers are on hand to help decide which is right for you.

In addition to this, our website contains a brief overview of the types of policies on offer. Once an adviser has spoken to you about your specific requirements, they can provide you with accurate quotations on your life insurance. That way, you can make an informed decision on which business life insurance policy is most suitable.

How do I get a business life insurance quote?

As life insurance is specific to an individual’s health, to provide an accurate quotation will involve speaking to an adviser. It takes just a few minutes to fill out a quote form on our website which comes straight through to our professional advisers.

From the information you provided, one of our qualified adviser will get in touch to find out more about your specific requirements. A quick health and lifestyle questionnaire is also completed to get as accurate a quote as possible.

How do I get Tax-Efficient Life Insurance?

There are some policies, such as Relevant Life Cover and key man insurance that benefit from tax efficiency. This can involve tax relief on Income Tax, Corporation Tax, Inheritance Tax and National Insurance contributions. For more information on specific policies, an adviser can help provide more clarity based on your specific insurance requirements.

I already have a policy; can I get another one?

If you already have a life insurance policy and are looking to add to this, we can help find the right amount of coverage that will work for you. Alternatively, we can help you renew a policy or find an alternative one if your existing policy is coming to an end.

I need a personal life insurance policy – can you help me?

If you’re looking for a personal policy instead, we can help you with that too. Our partnered advisers can help compare individual policies, as well as business life insurance. If you would like to take out a personal life insurance policy, you can fill out a quote here.

Why is your advice free?

At Business Cover Expert, we are passionate about life insurance as we know how much of a difference it can make to your family. We provide a comparison service for our customers so that they can make more informed decisions to suit them. We believe life insurance should be affordable, so we don’t charge a fee for our advice, helping you get a policy that fits your budget and suits you.

I’m not sure if I’m able to get cover – what do I do?

If you have an existing health condition or have been turned down for a policy before, we can help advise you on whether we can find any sort of cover from you. It may be that we have to take another look at the amount of cover you’re offered or change a policy slightly but we always strive to get you some cover to protect your business and your family.

What questions are asked during the health questionnaire?

The health questionnaire is designed to ask questions that the underwriter will ask when setting up your policy. Whilst some of these questions may be sensitive, our partnered advisers are all professionally and fully trained to handle these questions with sensitivity and understanding.

If you would prefer not to disclose medical information over the phone, you can fill out a secure medical form online instead which is only dealt with by your specified adviser and the insurance company that underwrites the policy.

Is my data confidential?

At Business Cover Expert, we are fully compliant with GDPR regulations. All your information and data is kept confidential on our records and only shared with the third party when it comes to setting up your policy. All informed stored is encrypted and used only for the purposes of setting up your life insurance policy.

Any information that is not required is not kept on our system. You have the right as an individual to request to see, remove or withhold any personal data.
Read our Privacy Policy.

How long does it take to set up a policy?

Once you’ve decided on a policy, we process the application straight away. If you’re fit and healthy, life insurance coverage can begin with 24 hours once all the paperwork is completed. However, if a GP report or medical exams are required, it can take a little longer to get the policy set up, depending on the response times from your GP.

Whatever is required, our aim is to get your life insurance policy set up as quickly and easily as possible, keeping you informed along the way.
