Accelerated underwriting has never been easier, and with the entire process being virtual, you can even get life insurance the couch while social distancing!

The premiums would greatly affect your current lifestyle and be a financial burden to pay.
It's important to note that Long-term care insurance is not right for everyone.
Because today's long-term care insurance policies offer a variety of features and benefits, it pays to take your time when choosing your policy.
There are many things to keep in mind as you consider the right long-term care policy for you. For example, the benefits you receive in the future should be substantially more than the premiums you will pay in your lifetime. The plan should not be a “cookie-cutter” or generic one-size-fits-all approach. The policy should be customized to your specific personal and financial needs. And the premiums should be affordable, not only now but in the future as well.
These plans typically for higher net-worth people can offer a return of premium to a beneficiary when benefits are not used.
Enjoy financial protection that always comes with peace of mind.
