There is an old saying and it's very true today - "Life is what happens when you are making other plans"! Yes thinking about an "unexpected" change in health is difficult but taking action now means decisions on assistance in the future will be much easier.

Isn't Long Term Care insurance expensive?

Yes & No! Yes the cost of buying is high because assistance professionals are very expensive here in CT. No because even when paying for a long time this special insurance, is just pennies compared to the very large amount you would have to take from income & savings when paying for help yourself.

For some individuals Long Term Care insurance's special age based tax deduction may help lower their cost.

Will help really be needed?

No one knows or can predict what is going to happen tomorrow or in 5 or 10 years. However, we do know the risk something will is much higher than the risk the home or car insurance we readily buy will be needed.

» Second - Help create a lower cost plan. How? Plan to pay for some assistance using income at the time and some savings/investments. Then buy a plan with a lower Monthly Benefit so some funds will be there to hire part of the professional support!
