Executive Group Life (EGL) is group life insurance coverage designed to help executives and other senior professionals by providing a generally income-tax-free death benefit for their beneficiaries, as well as the opportunity to accumulate account value to meet future needs. Executive Group Life insurance enables most employers to enhance their executive benefits while still minimizing overall benefit costs.
