one to have a life insurance benefit while still working or in retirement, with the
ability to use some or all of their death benefit for the purposes of long-term care
in their later years. ;his option can give clients the ability to pay for a benefit that
they know will be used in one way or another, potentially eliminating the feeling
of ;use it or lose it; that some may have with traditional policies. ;lso, ;ybrid
policies can be structured with ;fi;ed; premiums or a lump-sum and therefore,
reduce the risk of rising premiums that some may e;perience traditionally.
The downside is that underwriting requirements are typically more stringent
since you are underwriting a death benefit and living benefit together. ;any
individuals have older cash value policies
without a LTC benefit that may consider
re-evaluating those policies to create a new
benefit. The third option is asset-based;
using either retirement accounts or cash to
generate an annuity stream during retirement that can continue to pay for long-term care costs later in life. This option can also be useful to individuals who are
not able to pass the medical e;amination re;uirements of traditional or hybrid
policies, as well as those in risk classes such as smokers and those with ;iabetes
where the price may be prohibitive.
