November is Long-Term Care Awareness Month. The U.S. Congress has urged “the people of the United States to recognize (this) as an opportunity to learn more about the potential risks and costs … and the options available.” We’re proud to support this important educational campaign.
Long-Term Care Awareness Month was created by the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance (AALTCi). It’s purpose is to encourage the public to plan for the possibility of needing long-term care well in advance of when it might be needed.
You protect against other risks like a car accident or house fire. A need for long-term care is a risk to your savings and to your retirement. It will impact your family and loved ones. Just as it is smart to plan ahead for retirement, it’s smart to plan now for long-term care.
