Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, accounting for 99.7 percent of U.S. employer firms1 and creating more than 11 million new jobs between 1993 and 20112. As a small business owner, you know how important your business is to your employees and your community. That’s why building protection into your business plan is one of the most important decisions you can make. Life insurance can help protect you and your partners and help ensure a smooth transition of ownership. It can also provide a way for employees to keep their families secure.
