Protect your financial future with longterm care insurance
Longterm care (LTC) is a reality for many families today. More than 70 percent of people over the age of 65 will need longterm care services at some point*, and the cost of care can quickly impact retirement savings. Longterm care covers assistance that you or a loved one may need with daily activities like eating, dressing, and bathing. It may also help pay for physical therapy received periodically or even daily. And it may take place in a variety of settings including the home, the community, or an assisted living or nursing home facility. Expenses can be high – as much as $85,775 per year for a private room in a nursing home** – and can compromise the assets and wealth you have set aside for your retirement and your family’s future.
