Clients are age 51 and 52 in great health. They have a net worth of nearly $8 million but are still very concerned about being a burden to their children having gone through a long care event with a parent. Amazingly, they had no life insurance or long-term-care protection yet. Luckily they have done well financially with a few real estate investments and hadn’t seen the risks they have until their new advisor made these discussions a high priority in the services he offers. They also have some concern with estate taxes as they continue to earn good income, make solid investments and expect a small future inheritance. Their advisor pointed out the possibility of the sunset on inheritance tax exemption limits and the potential growth they might enjoy over the next 30-45 years.
After discussions on hybrid and asset based LTC strategies, they have decided on $500,000 John Hancock Protection UL with a 4% LTC rider. This will give each of them a solid $500,000 pool for potential LTC expenses at up to $20,000 monthly. Cost for her policy was only $5,051 Annually and his was $5,541. LTC protection if they need it and a death benefit if they don’t.
Again, we looked at single pay and shorter pay options, but this couple would rather deploy their extra cash in funding other goals and investments.
