Long-Term Care Benefit
The last thing many of us want is to be a burden on our loved ones as we grow older. The possibility of needing long-term care is something that we all must face as we enter our twilight years, and this type of care doesn’t come cheap. The cost of living in an assisted care facility can range anywhere from $30,000 to $70,000 a year or more, and for many people, Medicaid or Medicare will not pay the full amount, or possibly any. A Long-Term Care Benefit is a life insurance rider policy that provides the insured with the funds to pay for any necessary long-term assisted care, and can be an extremely beneficial policy to buy.
For one, as the health-care programs such as Medicaid and Medicare continue to be cut, fewer people will qualify, and there will be fewer benefits paid by these programs. This policy can also prevent you from burdening your family financially, or from relying on the state to provide care for you. If you currently have health problems that may eventually require long-term care, or a family history of long-term illness, this type of policy may be something to consider. The purpose of life insurance is to prevent your family from any financial loss or burden, and this type of rider could greatly increase the chance that you and your family will be provided for should the need arise.
