The “right amount” of hybrid long-term care insurance is different for every individual. Therefore, the amount of insurance you should get must be tailored towards your specific needs. A good starting point for determining the amount of insurance is to start with your budget and the cost of care in your state.
The great thing about hybrid long-term care insurance is it provides three valuable options for your money. It creates long-term care benefits if you need long-term care. It creates a death benefit in the event you never need long-term care. Lastly, it provides a return of premium if you ever change your mind.
Yes. While hybrid long-term care insurance offers the option for a single premium, many policies today offer 5-pay and 10-pay payment schedules.
