Life-expectancy continues to increase, and the longer you live the greater your chance to need some level of personal care assistance. Long-term care can have a devastating cost if not budgeted for. Could your retirement plan support an extra $50,000–$60,000 a year for part-time homecare assistance? Or $90,000–$110,000 a year for full-time facility care?

Since women live longer than men, guess who uses most long-term care benefits? As a result, almost all insurance companies charge women more—about 40% more than men! For these reasons, more than ever before, LONG-TERM CARE IS A WOMEN’S ISSUE!
