Some 10 million Americans currently require long-term care according to the American Association for Long-Term Care insurance with annual expenditures exceeding $200 billion. Experts expect the number of individuals needing care will grow significantly in the next decade as the 76 million baby boomers begin to turn 65. To educate individuals about the importance of long-term care planning and ways to make insurance protection more affordable, the organization is making available a free informational guide.
Discounts are available when applicants meet certain health qualifications. Non-smokers may qualify for savings and couples or partners who apply for protection may be eligible for savings, even when only one individual obtains insurance coverage.
The guide, “Potential Ways To Reduce The Cost of Long-Term Care Insurance” can be accessed online. As I am a proponent of financial planning for your older years, I have reviewed the guide and have found it useful. Check it out here.
