Long-term care insurance is designed to help you access the healthcare you need, without eroding your savings, in order to maintain your independence and quality of life during retirement.
Long-term care insurance
What is it?
It pays a weekly benefit to use at your own discretion, and services can be provided either within your own home, or at a health care facility.
Services may include:
- Ongoing nursing
- Personal care
- Social services
Things to keep in mind
There are any number of reasons why you might need assistance one day with everyday activities, such as preparing meals, basic household chores, or caring for yourself.
Without long-term care insurance protecting your income, your access to healthcare services may be limited to:
- Whatever you’re able to pay for, out of your savings
- Whatever services are publically available
