Asset-Based LTC Advantage
The Current Environment
As the Boomer population ages and longevity increases so does the need for Long-Term Care (LTC). But LTC insurance in today’s environment isn’t as straightforward as it used to be.1 The availability of LTC insurance is lessoning as carriers are limiting product availability and application approval. The rising costs of premiums are making it too expensive for some individuals to afford. While government programs like Medicaid or Veteran Aid & Attendance can provide some financial assistance, they traditionally fall short in asset limitations and the various types of care that are covered.2
The Alternative Solution
Since the inception of the Pension Protection Act (PPA) of 2006, consumers are permitted to participate in LTC combination plans. These asset-based plans allow for tax-free distribution of life insurance or annuity cash value to pay for long-term care.
