Heard of Long Term Care insurance? Want to learn more? Here's your opportunity.
Whether through personal experience or public awareness campaigns, I’ve found the scope of understanding of long-term care insurance often ends at the acknowledgment of its existence.
The why, when, and how of this type of important protection are where the conversation often breaks down. Here’s a chance to fill in the blanks.
Below is a list of 8 reasons I’ve compiled on why learning more about Long-term care is important.
- Statistically speaking, there is a very good chance you will need it.
- Care expenses are already astronomically high, and rising.
- Speaking of expenses, is the possibility of them accounted for in your retirement plans?
- It provides protections and covers more services than you might think.
- Counting on government supplemented benefits may not be prudent planning.
- Protects assets designated for other purposes (Charity, Legacy planning, etc.).
- To relieve the burden of care from loved ones.
- Freedom of choice of your care.
As pointed out in a recent Barrons article, the effects of potential long term care expenses on your retirement plan could be severe, but this is the exact type of risk (large, uncertain) that insurance is ideally suited for.
