Long Term Care Insurance Buying Tips
Long-term care insurance is not a one-size fits all type of policy.
You should purchase the amount of insurance that’s right for you.
When thinking about your long-term care insurance policy options. it is important to take the following into consideration:
Level of your personal assets you wish to protect
Long term care insurance should be a factor in your overall retirement planning. Because needs, resources and personal situations differ, our advisors will guide you through your options and help you select the coverage that’s right for you.
Current cost of care of where you live or plan to retire
Whether you plan to move to a warmer climate or closer to your family, the cost of care varies by state and by region. Where you retire is an important factor in determining the amount of coverage you will need. Current Cost of Care Studies will help you estimate your needs.
Length of time you’d like to be covered
Generally, studies show that people need long term care assistance for an average of three years. Still, you will want to take into account your health as well as any family history of prolonged illness such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease that may require you to need care for a longer period of time
Your Current Age
If you are young and in good health, it might be decades before you ever need to receive care. Thus, it is important to consider including inflation protection within your plan.
Inflation protection will help your benefits keep up with the rising cost of care. Even your most proactive financial plan will fail if your plan does not account for inflation in estimating your future needs.
As you can see, there are many issues to think about when designing your coverage.
