What is key man life insurance? Business owners ask that frequently and that's a great question, because it's an important one. You have a business, its rolling right along, everything is going great. It's booming, growing, everything, and you have that one employee that's there that everybody asks for. Maybe they do the job a little bit better than most everybody. Maybe they have a skill set that nobody else can really duplicate. Bottom line, they're integral to the success of your business.
Your business is doing well largely because of their contribution. And you probably take great care of them. You have their pay up there. You've got them on a commission program that fairly compensates them. The problem is, is what happens if they die in a car accident on the way home? Or they get cancer and something happens to them?

Term Life Insurance Coverage
Term Life Insurance is a much cheaper way to get a lot of life insurance coverage at a much lower premium simply because it expires after a specific amount of time.
