Today more than 12 million Americans are paying for long-term care services.1
Having a plan is important to anyone who may need care. Planning is also a critical step for their family because a long-term care event can impact generations—financially and emotionally.
Clients face significant risks
- One out of every two Americans turning 65 today will need the coverage of a long-term care solution during their lifetime2
- One-third of all individuals in the U. S. over age 85 suffer from Alzheimer’s disease3
Advisors estimate that clients who experience a long-term care event without having financial protection in place will draw down their retirement savings at rates two to three times faster than planned.4
