Long-Term Care (LTC) Insurance

Long Term Care planning preserves choices.

If you're 55, this is probably a subject you don't even want to think about.  If your are 35, its one you likely can't even fathom at this point in your life and career.  But planning ahead for the likelihood of needing long-term care can mean the difference between having a feeling of financial security about your retirement years--or not.

 

It's a topic too important to ignore.  There's a strong possibility that you or your spouse will have a need for long-term care.  As a matter of fact, seven out of ten people over the age of 65 will, and the total cost of LTC treatment can easily approach or exceed $200,000.

 

Generally, these costs are covered by only three different sources: you or your family's assets, government programs like Medicaid (a program designed for those with few resources), or various types of long-term care insurance products.  Don't believe the myth that Medicare will cover the costs of your long-term care--because it won't.
