Long-Term Care Insurance

What is Long-Term Care Insurance?

This is an income benefit if you become unable to care for yourself due to aging, an accident, illness or deteriorated mental abilities. It gives you the freedom to choose the kind of care you want, and the peace of mind knowing that the financial burden of care won’t rest with loved ones.

Long-term care services may be provided in a variety of settings: at home, through adult day care, or in a retirement home, assisted-living setting or long-term care facility.
