Most people envision themselves living a long life, investing and planning throughout their working years to create a financially secure future where they can enjoy spending time doing their favorite things.
As part of your client’s financial planning process, it’s important to understand the potential impact that needing long-term care may have on their assets, their family, and their future.
The reality is, as people start to live longer, the greater the likelihood is that your clients will require long-term care.
The costs associated with long-term care are significant
While it can take decades to accumulate the assets they’ll need to retire comfortably, just a few years of paying for long-term care may threaten a lifetime of savings.
If you’ve ever been in a care-giving situation, you understand the physical and emotional toll it can take. While providing care to loved ones is an act of compassion, placing these burdens on spouses, children and other family members can create a significant emotional and physical strain, and is something that many people would like to avoid.
Don’t wait to address your client’s long-term care needs
Incorporating long-term care insurance into financial plans today can help protect assets, reduce the burden of care that would otherwise fall on family members, and enable clients to receive care in the setting they most prefer, including their home.
Perhaps the greatest benefit: Long-term care insurance allows loved ones to care about, rather than care for, each other.
