Long term care insurance is a retirement planning tool to protect your assets from the high cost of needing long term care services. With the current average cost of care at $92,400 per year, it would not take long to spend a large amount of your assets on care. According to the Department of Health and Human Services, 7 out of 10 Americans age 65 and older will require long term care at some point in their lives. As you age, the probability of needing care and assistance also increases. (Read More)
A NOTE FROM ERIC JOHNSON, CLTC:
Long term care is a reality, and you don't want this to happen to you or your loved ones without solid preparation. Long term care events are indiscriminate: consider how it took down the most powerful leader in the free world, Ronald Reagan, with nine years of Alzheimer's disease.
I help people plan for how to pay for the devastating consequences of long term care, protecting their families, retirement income streams and assets in a tax-efficient manner. Once the preparation is complete, you can feel confident you have taken steps to help protect your retirement plan and family from one of your last major unfunded liabilities.
I have helped thousands of families plan for long term care.
Tragically, most people are unaware of the compelling need to plan for this reality while they can still qualify. As a consequence, the most efficient options are no longer available. Don’t let this happen to you. I can help you avoid this common mistake.
