As a trusted advisor, have you discussed alternative ways to fund long-term care (LTC) for your clients or their loved ones? With an aging population, the harsh reality is that a majority of Americans will need long-term care, assisted living, or homecare. Many clients in their 50-60’s cannot prepare for their own future as they’re forced to pay for the caregiving needs of their parents. Proactive decisions are pushed off and the cycle repeats itself.
Due to this unintentional, yet highly dangerous lack of planning, many families are unknowingly causing financial and emotional devastation to the multigenerational families for whom they care deeply. It is far to common for a client to call their advisor when they have an immediate long-term care need. At that point it’s typically too late. Failing to plan is planning to fail. At this point, they cannot qualify for long-term care insurance.
So what are the options? Why not try leveraging a Life Settlement to accomplish the goal?
By appraising and monetizing your client’s life insurance policy, you can enable clients to help fund their long-term care expenses and help give them find peace of mind. This frees up liquidity for the entire family which enables them to put the proper financial plan in place therefore allowing them to focus on what’s important, their family.

It is designed to help you determine in a timely manner if your client’s policy could qualify for a Secondary Market solution.
