Intended to strengthen the ties between your company and its vital executives, this account allows your company to purchase a life insurance policy on an executive, and name itself as the owner and beneficiary. At retirement, the executive receives the SERP benefits, or in the event of death before retirement, the executive's heirs will either receive annual income or a lump sum payment from your company.
