Long Term Care

Why Buy LTC

Three main reasons:
• To remain at home as long as possible.
• To protect the assets you’ve worked a lifetime to accumulate.
• To avoid becoming a burden to your family.


What triggers LTC benefits?

The inability to do the activities of daily living (ADLs).  Most companies use bathing, continence, dressing, eating, toileting, and transferring.  A policy pays benefits when someone cannot perform two of the six ADLs.
