Small Business Owners:
What Could Go Wrong?

Life insurance is crucial for small business owners as they often consider themselves their biggest asset. Whether you're the sole owner or in a business partnership, the absence of a key owner can have significant consequences for your business. That's why it's essential to have adequate insurance coverage that protects you in case of illness, injury, or even death.

However, a survey of Australian small businesses revealed that nearly half of owners have no life insurance at all, including Income Protection, Total and Permanent Disability (TPD), or Critical Illness insurance. Many uninsured business owners rely on their savings or selling assets as backup plans, while others plan to reduce their lifestyle and spending.

These alternatives may not be sufficient, especially for owners with children. Selling assets quickly may result in lower prices, and reducing one's lifestyle may not be enough to cover the financial impact of being unable to work. In fact, some owners admitted they would need to temporarily close or sell their business if faced with health issues or injuries, while others hadn't considered the potential consequences at all.

It's clear that there is a need to educate small business owners about the benefits and value of life insurance. By having the right coverage, you can protect yourself, your business, and your family from financial stress during challenging times.
