Is a hybrid long-term care insurance policy the right choice for you?

If you’re 50 or over, you’re likely spending at least some time thinking about buying long-term care policies.  These policies pay for care if you need continuing care either at home or in a skilled nursing facility.  There’s a 10 in 10 chance that you’ll die someday and a 7 in 10 chance that you’ll need long-term care.  So, why aren’t people trampling the crowds of people standing in line to buy long-term care insurance?  At least part of the answer lies in the fact that long-term care policies cost a lot of money.  If you don’t end up in a nursing home or you end up in a nursing home for a short period of time, people see that as essentially throwing their money away.  Mind you, the same thinking process is not used in determining whether to buy car insurance or homeowner’s insurance.  Still, the long-term care insurance industry notoriously raises premiums at stomach dropping rates so the cost can seem exorbitant to potential buyers.  One option is to consider a hybrid policy.  These policies combine the benefits of a long-term care policy should the policyholder ever need coverage with another form of insurance such as life insurance, should the policy go untouched.  Here’s a Wall Street Journal article with more details.  On Saturday, George Shipe with National Benefit Advisory will be our guest to talk about hybrid policies and whether you should consider purchasing one.  Please join us at 8:30 on KVI and on KIRO/KTTH from 10:30 to 11:30.

Congratulations! You are about to begin the process of completing estate planning documents – for free.

Before you get started, you should know that though this service is being provided by Life Point Law, an estate planning firm, by using the free service you will not be creating an attorney-client relationship, and no attorney will review your work. Estate planning can be complicated and generally requires some degree of legal analysis to ensure you have the right provisions. Especially if you have been married more than once, you have a blended family, or you have considerable wealth. We encourage you to seek some guidance, or at the very least, have a legal professional review your work before you call it completed.

Help is available. If you’re interested in getting a second opinion on the legal documents you have created, Life Point Law offers a Peace of Mind review that can put your mind at ease knowing you have dotted all your I’s and crossed all your T’s. Let our skilled attorneys review the legal documents you have created to make sure they meet your goals.

You may also want to drop by our offices to get your documents executed (witnessed and notarized) so they are in full force and effect when they need to be used.

You will receive an email soon with information about how to schedule your Peace of Mind Consultation.

By clicking ‘Start Working on Your Free Estate Plan’ below, you will acknowledge your understanding that no attorney-client relationship exists between Life Point Law and yourself.
