Do You Need Long Term Care Insurance?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Think Glink Media

When most of us think about our final years, we consider our life insurance policy and whether it would be enough to protect our families. But what about costs related to hospice care, in-home nursing, or assisted living? 

My colleague Linda Rey has written a very informative blog post on long term care insurance, including what it covers, and who can most benefit from the policy.

It may not be for everyone, but some of the benefits of having long term care insurance include:

  • Receiving tax-free money when you get sick
  • Avoiding spending your whole life savings on medical care
  • Claiming tax deductions on premiums paid
  • Preserving your dignity
  • Saving family members the burden of caring for you
For more information, check out Linda's full blog at http://insurance.equifax.com/2011/01/do-i-need-long-term-care-insurance.html.
