Did you know Long Term Care Insurance includes Home Health/Care benefits? Buying Long Term Care
Insurance does not mean you have to be in a Nursing Home to receive benefits. People are living longer and
health related costs are increasing much higher than inflation and many fixed income investments. Throughout
history people have advised aging investors to increase the percentage of their fixed income each year they age
by moving money into money market accounts, CD’s or other fixed income investment. Modern medicine is
allowing people to live longer, putting many elderly people in jeopardy of outliving their money. Long Term
Care Insurance offers protection that can help cover costs for Nursing Home, Home Care and many other
related services. However, Long Term Care Insurance is not for everyone. This class will educate anyone
thinking about buying Long Term Care Insurance for themselves or a family member. We will cover
Suitability, Affordability, Identifying and Inflation Protection.
