Health Risk Management

Set Yourself Apart

Most people think about planning for the future in financial terms, for example how much money they should save for retirement and how to invest that money to reach their goals. But there’s another type of planning that’s equally important—health risk management. Knowing what health risks you may face and what you can do to manage those risks and improve your health, wellbeing, and longevity starts with a personalized, proactive plan.

Key person insurance is simply life insurance on the key person in a business. In a small business, this is usually the owner, the founders or perhaps a key employee or two. These are the people who are crucial to a business–the ones whose absence would sink the company.

A buy–sell agreement that is funded by life insurance, the company or the individual co-owners buy life insurance policies on the lives of each co-owner. Thus, if you died, the company or the co-owners would receive the death benefits from the insurance policies on your life. Plus, your family would get a sum of cash as payment for your interest in the business. This provides financial support for them after your death and it also provides stability for the company.
