Insurance: The Protection of Last Resort

Ideally, the small business owner will structure the business to limit liability and then execute strategies to avoid day-to-day liability risks. As a result, it is hoped that claims will not be made or, if claims occur, the claimants will be unable to satisfy their claims from the business owner's personal or business assets. The asset protection strategies advocated throughout this small business guide are based on these principles.

What Type of Life Insurance?

Most employers offer group-term life insurance as an employee benefit, although other types can be offered. Term insurance is life insurance that is in effect for a certain period of time only. Generally, in the case of employer-provided term life insurance, the term is for as long as the employee is employed. Group-term life insurance can be offered to employees only, not to their spouses and children.
