Group Death in Service / Group Life Assurance - DGS Chartered Financial Planners

Group Death in Service / Group Life Assurance

What is a Group Death in Service/ Life Assurance?

Group Death in Service / Life Assurance protects your employee’s family and dependants by providing a tax free lump sum to their beneficiaries should they die whilst still in your employment.  This is usually a multiple of the employee’s basic salary.  The scheme would be set up under Trust and therefore will not form part of the employee’s estate.
