What Is Relevant Life Cover?

With a relevant life cover policy the business makes the payments and is designed to payout a lump sum if you or the employee dies whilst employed between the policy agreements. The main benefit is that you will not pay any national insurance contributions or income tax on the premiums and this being said you still benefit from corporation tax relief. Relevant life cover will also payout if the employee is diagnosed with a terminal illness.

Benefits of relevant life cover

  • Although the business will pay the premiums, they are not normally assessable for income tax on the employee as a benefit in kind. This will make you a significant saving, especially if you are a higher or additional rate taxpayer.
  • The payments made won’t form part of the employee’s annual allowance.
  • Premiums are not assessable on the employee for national insurance contribution purposes.
  • The death benefit (including terminal illness benefit) will not form part of the employee’s pension lifetime allowance.
  • If you leave the company the cover can go with you.


The person covered must be a resident of the UK and an employee of a UK business and cover will stop by age 75.

Key Facts
