Planning for it...
Even though nearly 70% of people over 65 years of age will need some type of long-term care in their remaining lifetime*, most people have not planned for this expense.
Even though the average need for care in a skilled nursing facility is just under three years, 28% will need more than 5 years of care during their lifetime.
Best time to purchase?
When you’re healthy. If you don’t meet the insurance company’s health guidelines when you apply, you can pay a higher premium, or, you can be declined.
The age dilemma...
Nearly 2 out of 3 applicants for traditional Long-Term Care Insurance who over 65 years of age are declined for coverage due to health issues.
Best age to purchase?
Many of my clients start in their 50’s with a Long-Term Care policy. The premium is lower, and, with some policies, you can have a paid-up policy by retirement age.
There are two general types of Long-Term Care Insurance: Traditional Long-Term Care Insurance, and, Asset-Based Long-Term Care Insurance. Allow us to help you determine which is right for you.
