Business Continuation Insurance is designed to protect your family and business partners from a crisis sale of your portion of business assets in the event of your death. Two common arrangements drafted as Buy-Sell Agreements are:
- Entity Purchase, in which your business is the owner and beneficiary of a life insurance contract. At your death, the business uses tax-free proceeds to purchase your business interest from your estate
- Cross Purchase, in which each business owner purchases a life insurance contract on the life of the other owner(s). At either shareholder's death, the surviving shareholder purchases the deceased's shares from his or her estate
- Provides liquidity and orderly disposition of your business interest in a timely manner
- Allows business owner(s) – not the IRS – to establish the sale price of your business before your death occurs
- Not A Deposit
- Not Guaranteed By The Bank Or Its Affiliates
- Not FDIC Insured
- Not Insured By Any Federal Government Agency
- May Go Down In Value
- May Be Purchased From Any Agent or Company and the Customer's Choice
Will Not Affect Current or Future Credit Decisions
