Beyond the familiar death benefit, permanent life insurance has several valuable advantages that can both expand and protect your financial security.
Long-Term Care Insurance
With America aging at a rapid pace — and with the average cost of nursing home care continuing to skyrocket — long-term care insurance can be a solid investment for individuals who have assets they want to protect or who want to avoid becoming a financial burden to their family.
In general, long-term care coverage helps to pay for assistance with daily activities such as bathing, eating, and dressing; skilled nursing care or rehabilitative services either in a nursing facility or home setting; and cognitive impairments such as Alzheimer’s disease.
Long-term care insurance is not life insurance, disability insurance, or health insurance. Instead, LTC includes a range of nursing, social, and rehabilitative services for people who need ongoing assistance due to a chronic illness or disability.
For the most part, those who need long-term care are left to foot the bill on their own. Neither Medicare, nor Medicare supplemental coverage, also known as Medigap insurance, nor standard health insurance policies fully cover long-term care. That leaves most of us with two options when faced with such expenses: pay out-of-pocket or rely on private long-term care insurance.
