Since 2015, LTC NEWS has provided comprehensive resources and articles about one of the most talked-about topics in retirement planning, long-term care. A leading website addressing this topic, LTC NEWS has been redesigned to provide the tools and resources needed to make longevity easier on your family and your finances.
LTC NEWS provides many tools to help families as they think about their longevity and the impact long-term care will have on their savings and lifestyle. LTC NEWS combines articles, features, resources, and other tools to give American families the information they demand to help them plan before they retire.
“We are very proud of the powerful information we have put all in one place. American families are dealing with long-term care each and every day. The impact of longevity places tremendous stress and burden on American families. The cost of paid care services is more than just financial devastation for many families. Yes, it drains assets and adversely impacts income and lifestyle, but families get changed because long-term care touches an entire family.”Daniel Pope, webmaster for LTC NEWS.
Health Insurance – Medicare Not an Answer
People require long-term care services and support due to illness, accident, or the impact of longevity. The need for extended care does happen at all ages but does increase with longevity. Health insurance, including Medicare and supplements, only pays a limited amount of skilled services. There are several ways to plan for long-term care including Long-Term Care Insurance which has become an essential part of retirement planning for many American families.
The updated LTC NEWS website helps people educate themselves about the current and future cost of care services in every state, find the availability of Long-Term Care Partnership policies, state and federal tax incentives, news articles on long-term care, health and retirement planning, and much more.
“These resources are all available on one website helping individuals and couples learn about how to best plan for the impact long-term care will have on their families and finances.”Daniel Pope
Without Advance Planning Your Family May Become Caregivers
The risk of needing some type of long-term care service in your lifetime increases as you get older. Without any advance planning, the responsibility of caregiving often falls on a daughter or daughter-in-law, an individuals’ savings, or both.
There are several types of planning products which include traditional Long-Term Care Insurance, Partnership certified polices with additional asset protection, asset-based or hybrid policies which also offer death benefits, and short-duration policies.
The benefits and premiums vary with the product, age of the policy owner, their health, family history, and the amount of benefits provided in the policy. Generally, people ages 40 to 70 are the best candidates for insurance planning, however, there are options for those who are older depending on their health. Every product has its own underwriting criteria.
While LTC NEWS only provides information and resources, LTC NEWS can help find a Long-Term Care Insurance specialist to assist a consumer in finding the best coverage at the best value.
