(Insured Retirement Institute study)
(COUNTRY Financial survey, November 2011)
What coverage do you have in place should you require assistance for several months or a year?
Perhaps with a broken hip from falling? Or maybe an “oops” on that great mountain biking adventure last weekend that will now keep you laid up for eight to twelve weeks? Or tripping over the garden wall and missing your footing on the ground? Any of these could have you needing round-the-clock care for longer than you have planned in your other insurance coverage.
These are also situations where Long Term Care Insurance comes through for you. It’s not just for older people, and not just for “permanent” long term care. Of course it’s useful for your retirement years. But did you know most people purchase long term care insurance in their 50’s, long before they are thinking of retirement?
