WHY ARE LONG-TERM CARE COSTS IMPORTANT?
Long-term care costs can range from very little (even zero) to well over a million dollars over the course of a client’s lifetimes. These costs can ruin an otherwise successful retirement. Unfortunately, these costs are often ignored or not completely (or even correctly) addressed
It is not possible to predict the actual costs each year as a single number. Probability distributions should be employed!
Long-term costs can have a significant effect on safe withdrawal rates (See Jack’s article, called “Safe Withdrawal Rates Incorporating the Full Range of Health Care Costs” in the November, 2014 Journal of Financial Service Professionals )
Providing anything less than a thorough analysis to address these costs is, in Jack’s opinion, a complete lack of service to clients, unethical, and could lead to liability on the part of the retirement planner and ultimately the insurance company.
WILL THE ISSUANCE OF A LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE POLICY RELIEVE THE NEED FOR A LONG-TERM CARE ANALYSIS?
The short answer is no. Retirees need to know the possible range of future long-term care costs and how this range changes with the policy. Some long-term care costs are not covered by an insurance policy (but are included in the analysis you get). The specifics of the policy should be analyzed – is the benefit period too short? Is the inflation rider adequate? Is the premium affordable? Unpaid help sometimes changes the purchase decision significantly. Only PDRP Plus has the capability to accurately and comprehensively analyze all these as well as other issues.
