Death in Service Benefit

Death in Service, also known as, Group Life Assurance Cover will pay a tax-free lump sum through a discretionary trust to an employee’s nominated beneficiary in the event of an employees death.

Two types of Group Life Assurance:-

  • Excepted Group Life – allows for a lump sum benefits to be paid outside of the Lifetime Allowance (LTA)
  • Registered Group Life – provides a tax-free lump sum up to the Lifetime Allowance (LTA)

Peace of Mind for the People You Work With

While nothing can be done or said that will make the loss of an employee better, as an employer you can put in place cover that will benefit the beneficiary of your employee in the event that they experience a death while working for your organisation. This money can help with funeral costs as well as provide financial relief to any dependants that your employee may have had, and while they are working with you it will give them the peace of mind that those that they care about will be looked after in the event of their death.

Tax-Free Payout in the Event of a Death in Service

Rest assured that the time and effort that it takes to put in place such an important policy such as a Group Life policy is minimal, with policies being able to be put in place simply and quickly. At BDHL our Death in Service / Group Life Assurance policies can be based on either a multiple of the salary of your employees or a specified amount. We have special arrangements in place with certain providers to be able to arrange cover for groups of all sizes from as few as 3 employees upwards, with a free cover level of £500,000 per employee. Our Death in Service / Group Life Assurance policy is simple to set up and doesn’t require that your employees make any medical declarations. Beneficiaries for death in service cover can be paid through a discretionary master trust.
