Life insurance

No one wants to think about what will happen if they die, but it's good to be prepared just in case. Life insurance covers employees' families in the event of their passing.

What is Life insurance?

Life insurance is an insurance policy that pays out money to an employee's loved ones if they die. The idea is to provide the employee's family financial security and support in the event of the employee's death — it protects them against any loss of income.

At Ben, we've partnered with leading life insurance providers to ensure employees and their families can access the best level of cover & service available.

Why should you offer life insurance?

Benefits to employees:

  • When life insurance is taken out as a group policy, the premium is often much lower than an individual policy. This means it's way more affordable for employees.
  • Financial security and peace of mind that their loved ones will be taken care of.

Benefits to you:

  • make your company a more attractive place to work, and can help you retain your current employees. It shows that you care about their well-being and the security of their families.
  • employees will feel secure and valued, which can lead to improved motivation levels and increased job satisfaction.
  • This is a tax-friendly benefit — you'll save on NI contributions and can claim corporation tax relief on premiums paid.
