Key Person Insurance is simply life insurance for any key person involved in your business. In a small business, this is often the owner, or perhaps an employee critical to the company's success. These are the individual who are crucial to the success of a business--the ones whose absence would sink the company. You definitely need to consider key person insurance on those people. They can be both a term plan for a specific period of time or a Life Insurance Retirement Option that can provide both benefits to the company and to the future of the employee.
