Can a Group Life Insurance Policy Include an Owner-Employee?

Yes. The employer may be a sole proprietorship, partnership, or close corporation. Employees eligible for coverage may include sole proprietors, partners, and employee-shareholders. (Note, however, that tax rules are different for self-employed individuals and partners than for common law employees.) Some group contracts also cover employees of an employer’s subsidiary. Retired employees may also be included.
