Long-Term Care Expenses

Protection From:
Long-Term Care Expenses

Ask yourself the following questions:

1) Do you have auto insurance?  We are sure you do.

2) If you own a home, do you have homeowner’s insurance?  We are sure you do.

3) Is it more likely that you will have a major auto accident or homeowner’s claims during your life or need long-term care help in retirement?  If you’ve read any of the statistics about long-term care, you know that over 50% of the American public sometime during their lives will spend more than six (6) months in an assisted living or “nursing” home. Our guess is that well over 50% of the people reading this have had a loved one in a nursing or assisted living home for an extended period of time.

4) How do you people generally pay for their long-term care expenses?  Out of pocket after tax (meaning you dip into your savings to pay for it).

5) Do you have long term care insurance?  Most readers will say no.  Why not?  Why do Americans insure their homes and automobiles and do not insure against long-term care expenses?

We believe there are a few reasons.

1) Americans do not want to deal with an expense that they think is 5-10-20+ years down the road.

2) To insure your long-term care expenses can sometimes be expensive.

3) One of the biggest reasons is because most advisors know very little about “long-term care insurance” which is used to protect clients from this nearly guaranteed expense.
