Relevant Life Plan/Death in Service
Relevant Life Insurance – sometimes called relevant life plan, relevant life cover or death in service – is a type of business protection insurance that allows a company or organisation to provide life insurance and in addition significant illness cover for one or more of their employees, including directors, payable to their next of kin.
Relevant Life Insurance
Many businesses are now beginning to offer additional benefits to their valued employees as part of a comprehensive scheme, and life insurance often forms the foundation of such a package. A Relevant Life Plan enables your business to provide life insurance cover with an option to also add significant illness cover, for your employees singly. With a Relevant Life Plan, you will be able to ensure that your most valued staff receive the peace of mind of knowing they and their loved ones are protected in the event of their death or significant illness (if selected).
A Relevant Life Plan must be issued under trust, from the start of the plan. This stipulates who the employee would like the benefit payable to. This includes the death benefit and also the significant illness benefit if selected. The employee is able to benefit from the significant illness cover, or this can be paid to their chosen beneficiary.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are Relevant Life Plans?
A Relevant Life Insurance policy is an individual death in service policy that can allow an employer to provide cost-effective and tax-efficient life cover for employees including directors. Relevant Life Plans provide life insurance with an option of adding employee significant illness cover that will benefit the family or loved ones of the employee covered in the policy.
Employers can retain complete control over their Relevant Life Plans by choosing the elements they wish to have, such as;
- Policy holders can choose between level cover – where the amount of cover remains the same throughout the policy – or increasing cover – where the cover amount increases to help protect against the future effects of inflation.
- Policy holders can add Significant Illness Cover to the standard Life Cover, in which case the policy will pay out should the named individual be diagnosed with one of the specified significant illnesses and meets the definitions of the policy.
- Policy holders can opt for a continuation benefit, which allows the individual named on the insurance to transfer the policy should they change employers.
