How to buy group life insurance

With ProtectMyPeople, the buying process couldn't be easier. When you receive your quotes from our insurance providers, review each policy's key benefits, features, and terms and conditions. Then simply choose the one which best suits your requirements and we will let them know.


We will then send you some documentation to fill in and return to us:

  • A proposal form containing the information you have given us about your business
  • A direct debit form if you have chosen to pay monthly or annually
  • A master trust deed of participation if you have decided to join your chosen insurer's master trust or a copy of your own trust deed

It's very important that you check the proposal form and confirm everything is correct. Inaccurate information could lead to your policy being cancelled or claims being rejected.
Once you are happy everything is accurate, just return the signed documents to us and we will confirm cover with your insurer.

They will then send you any further relevant information about your policy, including how to contact them to make a claim.

What do insurers look at when providing a quote for group life insurance?

Each insurance company will look at several factors when offering a quote for group life cover. The higher the risk associated with an industry or job, the more they typically charge.

Some of the factors insurers look at are:

  • The sector of industry a company works in. For example, a construction company whose staff work on site are likely to be charged more than an office based business.
  • The age of your employees. Insuring an older workforce may be more expensive as the risk to the insurer is potentially increased.
  • Where your business is located
  • The amount of cover you want for your employees
