Key-Person Life Insurance

Key-Person Life Insurance: When the death of a bank officer or other key person would be of such consequence to the bank as to give it an insurable interest, key-person life insurance insures the bank on the life of the individual. The bank generally pays the entire premium and is the beneficiary. The primary purpose of this type of insurance is to indemnify the bank against the potential loss of net income that may result from the death of the insured.
