Association of individuals into groups allows insurance companies to charge companies lower rates: "Providing insurance companies with a large volume of business gives us more negotiating opportunities for clients, which leads to lower group rates."
The primary policy holder for a wholesale life insurance plan in the case of the Employers Group and Employees is the employer, and for other groups, the entity that has an insurance interest in the lives of its members. First, such insurance plan is often minimal. It starts from 10 thousand dollars, if it is a small company, and if the company is larger, then the insurance covers the size of the annual income once. If you get 70 thousand dollars a year, then the insurance payment will be exactly this amount and will be paid once. But this money is not enough to replace family income for more than one year.
Second, if you are counting on employer insurance, ask for a certificate and read the coverage terms. In most cases, you must die, actively being at work (actively employed and actively at work) to get through an employer. This includes paid vacation and time you spend commuting to and from work.
Treat life insurance from an employer as basic, and the main coverage should be through an individual policy, regardless of where you work or whether you work at all. Besides, the employer insurance usually increases in value every year, rather than being fixed for the long term.
