National Long-Term Care Awareness Month:
Thanksgiving serves to remind us to be thankful for all the wonderful aspects of our life, such as our health and our loved ones. As we give thanks for these things, it is important to think about how we can protect them. Since November is also Long-Term Care Awareness Month, we want to share a few reasons to consider long-term care protection as part of your overall financial plan.
  • Long-term care expenses are a risk to your savings and to your retirement plan. Just as it is important to plan for retirement, it is equally important to plan for long-term care. A recent projection by PBS NewsHour and the Scan Foundation estimated that 70% of people 65 or older will one day need some form of long-term care. 1
  • If you or a loved one need nursing home care, you may risk draining your retirement savings. This year, the average annual cost for a semi-private room in a nursing home is $85,775 according to Genworth Financial's respected Cost of Care Survey. 2
  • Government programs are not designed to pay for all long-term care needs. Medicare only pays for skilled care for a limited amount of time, while Medicaid only covers those with low income and little assets. 3
  • Long-term care doesn't only cover nursing home care. Most long-term care insurance policies will cover care and services in a variety of settings including in the home. 4
