Traditional Long-Term Care Insurance Has Been Eclipsed by Life Insurance that Also Covers LTC
But buyer beware, such a policy may or may not fit your particular need
By: Les Robinson CLTC
So, if you're in the market, should you go with the flow — hybrid? "Not necessarily,"
Hybrid policies are increasingly popular; 260,000 were sold last year, up 5% from 2016, according to LIMRA, the industry research firm. That compares to sales of just 70,000 for traditional LTC policies in 2017, according to the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance (AALTCI). "About four times as many, amazing," says Robinson.
Should you join the crowd? "Maybe," says Robinson. "But first you should consider all your options. Hybrid and traditional are not the only ways to go."
Additional instruments include —
· Worksite LTC (voluntary plans for groups),
· Annuities with tax-advantaged LTC features,
· Critical illness insurance.
"Worksite plans are especially interesting,"
Robinson advises consumers and businesses on all these options. By-phone and in-person briefings are free of charge.
