    The #1 risk in retirement is human longevity. Living longer can impact the cash flow of seniors with unexpected costs like long term care. Whether it's at home assisted living or nursing home confinement, long term care can mitigate the cost of elder care via indemnification or reimbursement coverage.

    When it comes to buying long term care insurance, make sure you've educated yourself first!  It's important to understand the product before you make any decisions about the type of policy you want.  Here's an LTCI glossary that can help you understand the "bells and whistles" of any LTCI policy. http://www.diservices.com/salestools/ltci-glossary.html

    What are some of the things to consider when buying long term care insurance? Well what is nice about most software agents use to help you with your selections is that they can "plug" in different benefits to the plan and you can immediately see what it does to cost and plan design. The things you need to consider are cost, as in can you afford to pay the premiums and possible increases in the future? Plan design, are the choices in plan design relevant to how long term care is actually used? It is a good idea to review actual costs of care in your state and duration of stays in a long term care facility. This way you can fine tune a bit and get a policy that will work for you without breaking your bank account
