Long-term care is an increasingly important piece of retirement planning.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has calculated that approximately 70% of people who reach age 65 will require long-term services and support longer than three years. Long-term care insurance is designed to pay a benefit to help defray the rising costs of services that are more and more necessary for an aging population.
ABD is offering a discounted and simplified-issue voluntary long-term care insurance program to ABD employees across the United States.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
Long-term care insurance typically covers a defined daily benefit of $200-$300/day that you can use to pay for services like home care, residential care, or skilled nursing. to name a few.
The daily benefit on these plans are payable for a duration of 3 years following a brief waiting period of 90 days that works like a basic insurance deductible.
Plans can be purchased with inflation. A plan with 3% inflation will double your benefits every 24 years.
Rates are gender neutral but based on age and marital status.
Single applicants receive a 5% discount. (click here for single rates)
Married applicants get an additional 15% discount. (click here for married rates)
Married applicants applying with a spouse (and both approved) receive a 35% discount. (click here if married and applying jointly)
Your quotes are on three separate pages, each one highlighting a different benefit amount: $200, $250, and $300/day. Find your age and then review your rates both with and without inflation. "Deferred BIO" means no inflation and "3% Compound BIO" has an increasing benefit of 3% per year.
