Description

The very mention of long-term care makes many of us want to run the other way, but with roughly 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 every day from now until 2030, the future costs of long-term care, and health care in general, are a top concern of current and soon-to-be retirees. It’s also one of the toughest decisions to make but given the rising costs of care it’s a critical consideration for long-term retirement planning. Whether you decide to buy long-term care insurance or self-fund, it’s important to be well-informed and pro-active in your ultimate decision.
