Long-Term Care Awareness Month 2017
Stand-alone long-term care insurance may still be going through tough times, but long-term care (LTC) planning is starting to become a standard part of any thorough financial planning conversation.
Bill Nash, vice president for insurance solutions distribution for Lincoln Financial’s MoneyGuard product, and Mike Hamilton, a Lincoln Financial vice president and head of MoneyGuard product management, talked about the shift recently during an interview in New York.
Lincoln offers MoneyGuard, a life-LTC hybrid product, and it also offers other types of life insurance and annuity riders that can help purchasers pay for long-term care costs.
Nash said he thinks financial advisors are much more interested in LTC planning now than they were even 10 years ago.
