So why should life cover for key personnel be the same?

What is Keyperson insurance?

The loss of a key person who has specialist skills or knowledge can severely impact future business goals and profits. Old Mutual Protect Business Life Cover pays a single tax-free amount to the business when a key person such as a director, manager, business partner or employee dies. This payout can be used to minimise financial losses incurred by the loss of the key person. Not only can you cover your key person for death, but also for disability, functional impairment or severe illness.
How does it work?

With the help of your financial adviser, you can build cover that's right for your keyperson, following these three steps:

  • Choose your cover - in this instance Old Mutual Protect Business Life Cover
  • Enrich your cover by paying extra to add on benefits such as Old Mutual Protect Business Disability Cover or Old Mutual Protect Business Functional Impairment Cover and Old Mutual Protect Business Severe Illness Cover.
  • Choose your add-ons. If you chose Old Mutual Protect Business Disability Cover in step 2 you can choose Own Occupation Benefit as an add-on. If you chose Old Mutual Protect Severe Illness cover, then you can opt for Top-up Benefit as an add-on.
