The simple answer is yes!
You can put in place a tax efficient life insurance policy, set up by your business, which pays out a tax free lump sum on your death (or diagnosis of a terminal illness). These proceeds will be paid to your family or financial dependants.
You may have a company death in service scheme, but what many people do not realise is that these types of policies are written under pension rules. So, any claim will be added to the value of your pensions and could be subject to a tax charge if the value exceeds the lifetime allowance of £1,055,000 (2019/20 tax year).
The alternative option is to establish an individual life insurance plan, usually suitable for high earning employees, who might have exceeded their pension lifetime allowance.
This life insurance has the following benefits and features:
Like all life insurance, the monthly premium is dependent on age, level of cover, termination age and your health.
For illustration purposes, a 40 year old could obtain life cover for £400,000, which ceases at age 65, for £22.15 a month.
Please note that this premium is based on someone who is in good health, and will be subject to medical underwriting.
