The spiraling cost of long-term health care has made long-term care insurance an essential part of our retirement planning: To help us protect our life savings and our independence…to keep us from ever becoming a burden to our children…to provide the money we'll need to get professional care at home — so there's less chance we'll have to spend our last years in a nursing home.

The New England Journal of Medicine reports that rising long-term care costs "are enough to exhaust the financial resources of all but the wealthiest elderly persons." Advances in medical science have increased our life expectancy and the probability that we'll need long term care. The journal study concludes, "Once a couple turns 65, the chances are greater than 2 out of 3 that at least one spouse will need care."

Today, in the Metropolitan New York area, the cost of an average nursing home is more than $260 a day or $95,000 a year. Affordable long-term care protection could well be your best investment for maintaining your financial independence and your dignity.
