Everyone hopes to be healthy throughout life. But long-term care requirements as you get older could prevent you from enjoying the things you do today. That's why your financial strategy needs to help protect the assets and lifestyle you've worked hard to build.

People can require long-term care as they age. A chronic illness or disability can also lead to a need for long-term care.

How does it work?

Long-term care insurance pays you income (generally tax-free) that you can use to help offset the costs of long-term care services, whether they are received in a facility or in your own home. Long-term care insurance can help cushion the financial, emotional and physical costs associated with chronic care. It can provide flexibility and choice, and help protect the assets and lifestyle you've worked hard to build.
