What is Long-Term Care Insurance?
If you ever have a long-term illness or a chronic condition, you may require extended care at home, in an assisted living facility, or nursing home. Long-term care insurance can help make sure you have the financial resources to cover these costs, which can be steep. Long-term care insurance will help you maintain your financial freedom and give you flexibility to participate in making choices that impact your care - about the services you receive, where you receive them, and who provides the care you need.
Why would I ever need it?
No one can predict if and when you will need long-term care, or for how long. We do know that:
- At least 70% of people over 65 will need long-term care services at some point.1
