69% of business owners have never heard of RLP. Time to put life cover on expenses.
A Relevant Life Plan is a life insurance plan available to employers to provide an individual death in service benefit for their employees.
It’s designed to pay a lump sum to the employee’s family if the employee dies when employed, while the plan is in place.
It will also pay out if the employee, whilst employed and covered by the plan, is diagnosed with a terminal illness, with life expectancy of less than 12 months, that meets our definition. Premiums are paid, and the policy is owned, by the employer.
The policy must be placed into a Relevant Life Plan Trust, which can be tax-efficient for both employee and employer.
