Can your client afford long-term care insurance?
Common questions that come up from clients regarding long-term care insurance often include what should they buy and how much they should buy. And the question that should really be asked is if they can afford it? When looking at long-term care insurance it is important to look for an inflation adjustment in the policy which is necessary to make the long-term care insurance policy effective. Usually people want to aim for the shortest elimination period, which is the shortest amount of time that your client would need to be in a nursing home before the insurance would start to pay. However, the shorter the amount of time, the higher the cost will be. Each client needs to weigh their options carefully before purchasing long-term care insurance so it is worth it in the end.
