International Group Risk

Group Life Cover (Death in Service) provides a ‘tax-free’ lump sum to the loved ones of an employee who has died whilst being employed.

Typical benefit is a multiple (frequently 3x) of the employee’s annual salary.

It’s a very simple benefit to provide to staff and is one of the highest valued ‘perks’ that an employee can have and yet its largely inexpensive to provide by the employer.

Death in Service is not a taxable benefit and all employees would be included in the cover.
