Critical Illness Insurance: Shared Ownership with Return of Premium

February 15, 2022 at 1 p.m. ET

Shared ownership arrangements are created when two or more parties agree to share a single asset. This way, each party pays only for the benefits they want. Shared ownership using critical illness insurance allows a business to protect itself against financial hardship should a key employee be diagnosed with and survive a covered critical illness. The strategy also provides the employee with an opportunity to participate in the benefits of a critical illness insurance policy.
