PTL Helps Clients Manage Death-in-Service Claims Through Group Life Master Trust


London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/01/2021 -- A Group Life Insurance scheme pays out a lump sum if an employee dies while in service. This lump sum is equivalent to a multiple of a worker's earnings. To avoid any inheritance tax implications, businesses place the policy into the trust at the outset. Insurers pay the benefit to that trust before the trust distributes it to the appropriate beneficiaries in the event of a claim. PTL is a leading provider of independent trustee services that set up group life master trusts to help clients manage death-in-service claims. The trust plan is designed for employers who want an efficient alternative to setting up their own life-only trust for administering death-in-service benefits. The expert team at PTL carry out a thorough yet sensitive investigation to determine beneficiaries for death-in-service benefits. Their plan can have a plethora of benefits for employers such as:

- Provide peace of mind to employers
- Determining beneficiaries
- Facilitate the efficient payment of benefits
- Impartiality in reaching decisions
- Act as an easy to reach contact for employers and insurers
- Allow employers to present the trust as part of their employee benefit package
