business life insurance

What is business life insurance and why do I need it?

Business life insurance is similar to personal life insurance in that it financially protects people after you are gone. The difference is that it protects business associates and also protects your business — something that personal life insurance does not do. There are three types of business life insurance: Buy/Sell Life Insurance, Key Employee Insurance, and Sensible Benefits.

What exactly does it do for me?

  • Buy/Sell Life Insurance is intended to provide funds to buy out a deceased partner’s interest in a business so that the family of the deceased doesn’t have to worry about getting involved in the business in order to replace income lost.
  • Key Employee Insurance is to provide funds to the business in the event of the death of a key employee to hire a replacement, replace income lost, or buy outstanding stock from the deceased employee’s family.
  • Sensible Benefits is a payroll deduct life insurance plan to offer to all employees. It is portable, meaning if an employee leaves your business, they can take it with them. It is their policy. Sensible Benefits are considered a benefit in the traditional sense, but at no cost to the employer.

I have been doing business with Tom since I opened my business 13 years ago. Will not do business with anyone else. He always takes such good care of us. We also have all of our personal insurance through him as well. Highly recommend!

I have been a customer of DeAngelis insurance for years now. Tom and his staff have always been nothing but prompt, courteous and professional whenever I needed assistance or have a question. Navigating insurance as a single dad with teenagers has been a walk in the park with all their help.

I don’t just consider Tom my insurance agent but a great friend as well and a great supporter of the Stow community.
