Long-Term Care Insurance
When we plan for retirement, we dream of being financially secure. And, with a diligent financial plan that dream can become a reality. But in saving for your future, don't overlook the need to protect your retirement savings from the unforeseen expense of a prolonged illness or disability.
Today, one of the best ways to guard against the unexpected and maintain the financial security you've planned for is through long-term care insurance.
What is Long-Term Care Insurance?
Long-term care is the physical assistance given to people who need help with normal daily activities such as dressing, bathing, eating or just getting around. Provided by home care organizations or nursing homes, this type of care is very costly. And unfortunately Medicare and health insurance plans aren't designed to pay for it.
Why do I Need Long-Term Care Insurance?
Experts estimate that more than 66% of Americans will require long-term care assistance at some point in their lives. And with nursing homes costing as much as $40,000 to $70,000 per year - and continually rising - long-term care insurance is a smart investment in your future.
What is Covered in a Long-Term Care Policy?
Long-term care insurance covers the care you need, whether it's in your home or at another facility. Benefits can be paid for:
