Your life, your choice
There are plenty of decisions
to make for retirement...
  • Fishing or golf?
  • Motor home or
    long-awaited cruise?
  • A house at the beach —
    or close to the grandchildren?


Long term care insurance may help you avoid a far more difficult decision: whether to exhaust your savings or liquidate your assets to pay for a period of long term care. This policy may help you be prepared for the financial realities and help you maintain control of some important decisions, such as:
  • Who would take care of me?
  • Where can I choose to receive care?
  • Would I be a burden on my children if my savings
    couldn't cover my care?


What is long term care?
Whether it's due to a motorcycle accident or a serious illness, it is the type of care you may need if you couldn't independently perform the basic activities of daily living: bathing, dressing, using the toilet, transferring from one location to another, continence and eating, or if you suffered severe cognitive impairment from a condition such as Alzheimer's disease.


Who's at risk?
Long term care insurance is not just for the elderly.
  • Only 16% of American workers say they are very confident they would have enough money to pay for long term care expenses in retirement.1
  • 70% of people turning age 65 can expect to use some form of long term care during their lives.2
  • Annually, about 9 million people use long term care services.3
