Long-Term Care

As independent financial planners, we represent all three types of long-term care policies that are available which are reimbursement, indemnity and cash payment plans. We favor the cash payment plans because they are simpler to understand and easier to access the benefits.

With the passage of 2005 Federal legislation, your future long term care risk needs can be covered with new features attached to life insurance, annuities and traditional long-term care policies. Talk to us about how we can help you manage your long-term care risk.
