Thanks to advances in healthcare and nutrition, we are living longer and longer with every generation. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always mean it isn’t without health concerns. It is now possible for someone with chronic health ailments to live a very long life, but may need some healthcare assistance along the way.
Long Term Care Planning is about having the necessary assistance to do the necessary daily living activities when we get older such as bathing, eating, toileting, transference, etc. Many times this assistance can provided in form of home healthcare, where someone comes to your home on a daily or period basis to provide the assistance. Other times it may be provided in an assisted living facility or a nursing home depending upon your needs.
Long term care planning is essential to making sure you are adequately prepared to meet the financial needs you may face later in life as the costs for long term care are rising and can be very expensive. Most long term care costs are also not covered by Medicare.
By having appropriate planning and insurance in place, you can rest assured you are not a burden to your family and also do not have to deplete your retirement assets leaving your spouse impoverished.
Fortunately, there are many products available on the marketplace now to address these needs including long term care insurance, annuities and life insurance with long term care riders that can provide the necessary benefits if needed, otherwise, they are paid out as income and death benefits to the beneficiaries if never used.
At Shalin Financial, we understand how to effectively put a plan in place for your potential long term care needs. We even have products that provide cash benefits that can be used abroad for individuals who would like to retire internationally.
If a long term care insurance is right for you, we’ll help you search through the many options available including the optional riders to help keep up with inflation to find the policy that is right for you. If utilizing your current retirement savings measures make more sense, we can help there too.
