Long Term Care Needs-the Greatest Threat

Posted on July 29, 2015 at 2:50 PM

One of the greatest threats to any client’s income or accumulation plan is an LTC event. With the cost of care ranging from $54K to $100K annually, a client could be forced to liquidate equities at depreciated values, tap into annuities that were earmarked for lifetime income, or destroy their legacy values.  Then there are Capital Gains taxes to worry about if you've sold off personal property to pay for your care.

If you've priced LTC policies, you know they don't come cheap.  Most folks don't know that today's Life Insurance Products have Long Term Care riders available to include right in your Interest Earning Life Insurance Policy!  How they work, in a nutshell (contact me for further info or a quote), is we add the rider to your Life Policy.  The rider specifies a percentage of your policy's Face Amount that would be payable should you be unable to do 2 of the six ADL's (Activities of Daily Living which are: eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, transferring (walking) and continence). 

The usual  LTC benefit is 4% of the Face Amount per month, so let's say you have a $250K Face Amount policy, 4% per month would give you $10,000.00 per month to use for Long term Care expenses TAX FREE!  If you had a $500K Face Amount policy, 4% would give you $20,000. per month for your needs.  Right now per the IRS, the "tax free" threshold is $9600.00 mo, so you could consider taking less or just as much as you really need to be comfortable.   You would be diminishing the worth of your Life Insurance Policy by taking the money out if you did not put it back in, but in the meantime, you've provided for your Long term Care needs on a tax free basis.  After learning a bit about how this works, you may decide to buy more face amount or two different policies, one with the rider and one without.

Don't get me wrong, a good LTC policy is a great thing to have, but once you pay your premium for it, if you don't use it you get nothing back, it's water down the drain so to speak.  By having the LTC rider, you are accessing your "death benefit" which is why the benefit is tax free, but you are not risking the loss of all those premium dollars for a stand alone LTC policy.

Again, the best time to buy this is YESTERDAY! The younger you are and the best health you can be in will save you thousands of dollars in premiums in the long run and having the coverage you NEED and knowing your premiums will never go up, regardless of your health or age is priceless.

My wife and i were so comfortable that Peter managed to round up his investigations through the entire precious recommendations he got while using the site. It's not at all simplistic to simply continually be giving freely tips and hints which people today may have been making money from. We really fully understand we've got you to be grateful to because of that. Those explanations you have made, the simple web site menu, the friendships you aid to promote - it's most astounding, and it's making our son in addition to the family reason why this idea is excellent, and that's rather serious. Thank you for the whole lot!

I wish to express my thanks to this writer just for bailing me out of this predicament. After browsing through the the net and obtaining notions which were not pleasant, I believed my entire life was gone. Being alive devoid of the solutions to the problems you have fixed through this blog post is a critical case, and ones that could have in a negative way affected my entire career if I hadn't encountered your blog. Your actual training and kindness in playing with all things was very useful. I'm not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a step like this. I'm able to now look forward to my future. Thanks for your time so much for this reliable and sensible guide. I will not think twice to endorse your blog to anyone who should get recommendations on this problem.
