Long Term Care Solutions

Why would you need to worry about Long Term Care?
  • By the time we reach age 65, 7 out of 10 of us will need some level of LTC in our lifetime and this can create a financial and emotional hardship for most families.
  • 55% purchase LTC between the ages of 55 and 65.
  • The longer you wait, the more it can cost you to obtain coverage.
How can you cover your LTC needs?
There are many different ways to leverage your assets to maximize your long term care
coverage depending upon your specific situation. We explore various options, such as:
  • Traditional Long Term Care Insurance
  • Life Insurance with an optional LTC rider
  • Annuity with a LTC rider
