What Is A Relevant Life Plan?

A Relevant Life Plan is a term assurance plan available to employers to provide an individual death in service benefit for an employee. It is designed to pay a lump sum if the employee dies whilst employed during the length of the policy. It will also payout if the employee, whilst employed, is diagnosed with a terminal illness and meets our definition at any time during cover. A Relevant Life Plan is paid for by the employer.

Relevant Life Plan Trust

A Relevant Life Plan is designed to be written in a discretionary trust (Legal & General's Relevant Life Plan Trust) at outset, with the employee’s family and dependants as beneficiaries. If the plan is not placed in trust at outset, your client should seek expert legal and tax advice on the consequences of this.
