After many years of selling insurance I have decided to take a hiatus for an indefinite period. I’m teaching special education and taking care of my family, some who are aging and using their long term care insurance.
Although I’m no longer working as an agent, I can tell you that, as a consumer, if you have assets that are important to protect and you can afford the premiums, LTC insurance is very important.
Also, from one consumer to another, if your premium is ever raised, don’t cancel your policy. Just reduce the benefits to get the premium that you are comfortable with and try to do this without adjusting the inflation rider.
Blessings to all of you and thank you so much for a wonderful eighteen years.
Long term care insurance can be confusing. The policies are different with a variety of features. There is a mountain of information available that few people have the time to explore in any great detail. The answer to the question of “When should I buy?” varies greatly. And many families have other financial obligations that discourage them from considering long term care insurance.
What often happens is that people delay shopping for long term care insurance until something happens. A friend, a neighbor, or a family member looses their independence through an illness or accident. At this point a person realizes that a long term illness or accident will have a huge impact on their life and their assets.
With all these factors involved, it is no wonder that people put off this purchase until they feel they have no other choice. Waiting is a risk as well because health changes as we age and this makes the coverage more expensive or worse, unavailable.
With the right information, a person can make the right choice for themselves and their family.
