Three Short-Term Benefits of Long-Term Care Insurance -- Surprisingly Bullish

Millions of successful Americans neglect a simple safeguard to their wealth and dreams: long-term care insurance.

Why?

"They just don't want to think about it," says one industry observer. "It's a psychological downer.  Bullish people recoil at thoughts of ever needing help with tasks of daily living. Things like moving around, eating, or toileting. So they put it out of mind."

A way around this block is to focus on the…

Keeping families whole and intact

The data is undeniable about the many long term care (LTC) risks facing our aging American population. But data alone is not why families decide to purchase LTC protection. Families purchase LTC protection because this is what leaders do: secure leverage to pay for potentially unwelcome consequences in order to keep their family intact. LTC insurance provides significant leverage in times of need. LTC insurance policies save relationships and keep families whole.

LTC + Medicare = additional revenue or does it?

Many brokers in the LTC world run across daily those LTC clients where either the policy holder and or the spouse are Medicare eligible OR are aging into Medicare in 6 months.  Unfortunately, in my conversations with others this opportunity to gain additional revenue from Medicare sales goes untapped or tossed to a buddy.

Trying to poll the Guild members as to how many take advantage of this LTC + Medicare revenue opportunity versus ignoring or passing the lead…

Value of voluntary long term care for family reaches staggering amounts

I am not a fan of a lot of statistics especially when it becomes a discussion about extended care.

Why? People are in denial that it will ever happen to them or if it does, they will have family and sufficient funds for care giving.

The conversation is not about statistics, it is about the consequences that if you need care giving, how will this effect not only those who need care giving but those will be responsible for…

Here is Harley Gordon’s idea of thinking about…
