Member Benefits

Long-Term Care Insurance Seminar & Consultations
Long-term care (LTC) has been called "the greatest uninsured financial risk today." That's because the majority of costs for extended care needed during recuperation from strokes, accidents, illnesses, and operations are not covered by health insurance or Medicare. Without LTC insurance, these costs are paid from one's personal savings and assets.

Please join WEAC Member Benefits to learn more about this important coverage.
