Long Term Care Insurance
What is Long Term Care Insurance?
It’s easy to take our ability to perform day-to-day activities for granted. But this can change, especially as we age. This is why it’s so important to consider your future healthcare needs as you build and review your retirement savings and income plans.
Long term care insurance provides an income-style benefit if you become unable to care for yourself due to aging, an accident, illness or deteriorated mental abilities. The money is for you and your family to use as you wish – you do not need to submit receipts for reimbursement – giving you more control and choice while helping to protect your savings and income.
When Should You Buy Long Term Care Insurance?
You’re concerned your retirement income might not last for your lifetime if your health deteriorates and government programs are insufficient to meet your needs.
You want the financial resources to help you choose the type and level of care that’s right for you if you have an accident or need substantial care later in life as you age.
You want to protect your wealth and legacy from being eroded by the cost of care.
