3 Signs You’d Do Well to Consider Long-Term Care Insurance

When was the last time you bothered to think about various types of insurance? Insurance is a topic most people don’t want to think about at all, let alone insurance they never considered in the past.

Life insurance is one of those things people have a tendency to neglect until they reach their mid-40s or get into their 50s and 60s. By that point in time, the policy will likely be a lot more expensive than it would have been if the individual began it in their 30s.

Long-term care insurance, though, is not a popular topic to discuss. That’s not because it’s unimportant, but because it isn’t glamorous and there is very little marketing behind the idea. However, carrying decent long-term care insurance has the potential to save people tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars when you consider the cost of various types of long-term care, from assisted living to nursing homes, from home care support to other independent living environments.

Here are three signs that could very well indicate you should consider long-term care insurance, either for yourself or a family member.

Sign #1: You’re not wealthy.

If you don’t have a lot of wealth and your retirement portfolio doesn’t look as impressive as you’d like it to, and perhaps retirement is only 10 years or so away, then it’s time to consider long-term care insurance.

Imagine you were 66 years old and were suddenly diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. That would be devastating, but as the disease progresses, it could place enormous pressure on your family, including your spouse and possibly adult children. Eventually, they will hire home care support or consider nursing home care, which will cost dearly. It could potentially wipe out everything you spent your entire life saving for.

Sign #2: You have a family history of health issues with age.

If your father, mother, grandparents, and other elderly family members dealt with significant health issues as they got older, odds are you will to. If that’s the case, you would do well to consider long-term care insurance.

Sign #3: You’re approaching retirement age.

If you’re well on your way to closing in on retirement, your health will be an issue, whether it’s in your 60s or 70s or later.

The longer people live, the more likely they’ll require some type of long-term care in the future.

If you recognize any of these signs with you, it’s time to seriously consider gettin a long-term care insurance quote.
