Posted by Rob Marusin

Aug 17, 2012 11:11:00 AM

What's that??Although there may appear to be a vast array of life insurance policy types available, they all consist of one of two basic forms: Permanent insurance and Term insurance. As the names imply, permanent insurance is permanent (for life) and term insurance is temporary. Most people require a combination of the two types to fit their needs. Examples of permanent needs are funeral expenses, survivors' income, taxes at death on capital gains, taxation of RRSPs and RRIFs and charitable bequests. Examples of temporary needs are mortgages, children's education and business loans.

Life Insurance for Small Business Owners: What You Should Know

Posted by Rob Marusin

Jul 24, 2012 8:50:00 AM

As a small business owner you have insurance on property and business assets, but often business owners may neglect to purchase one of the most important types of insurance. Life insurance can mean the difference between bankruptcy and survival when a business owner or key person dies. Proceeds from an insurance policy can be used to train a successor for a deceased key person or to purchase a business owner’s shares in the event of his or her death. There are two important products for you as a small business owner to consider Buy-Sell Protection and Key Person Life Insurance.

The death of a business partner (shareholder) may result in your company being sold in order to compensate the family of the deceased partner (shareholder). The remaining partners/shareholders may not be able to fund a buy-out of the deceased’s share of the business, which may result in an unwanted outside interest gaining control of part of your  company.
