Key Person Insurance

Many businesses rely on the talents and skills of few individuals within the organization. Their contribution to the business has a major effect on the company’s profitability. These key persons are vital to the continued success of the business. A sudden death or Total Permanent Disability (TPD) caused by an accident to them may result in a major loss to the company.

Allied introduces Key Person Insurance (KPI) to help local businesses recover the loss they may undergo following premature death or TPD of these key persons.
