BROKERS

We see your business through your eyes

You’ve read all the studies or have already seen the stats. There is a growing recognition of the need to prepare Baby Boomers for healthcare costs in retirement, and more of them are turning to their employers for help. By understanding the issues and the evolving nature of the industry, brokers have the opportunity to present group LTCI coverage as a viable and highly desirable option for their corporate clients, and one that will resonate as a true benefit to their employees.

The Group LTCI Value to Brokers

  • Facilitates discussions around retirement readiness and financial wellness
  • Helps protect employees’ retirement income and lifestyle
  • Delivers robust sales, implementation, enrollment and policyholder support

Having a conversation about long-term care planning can be overwhelming. With so much to cover, it can be easier to retreat instead of moving forward with the discussion. Our team of experts can help guide you and your clients through these meaningful benefit discussions.


EMPLOYERS

Nobody likes to talk about long-term care, which is exactly why we should talk about it

Studies have shown that at least 70% of people over 65 will require some type of long-term care support at some point at some point in their lives. Let's face it, the need for planning is real. Increasingly today, employees are looking to their employers for not only core and voluntary benefits, but retirement planning guidance.

Group long-term care insurance (LTCI) solutions can help address retirement planning concerns and round out a comprehensive benefits program. We take on all the heavy lifting, which enables you to provide a high-quality benefit to your employees without investing significant time and resources.

LTCI Planning

  • Helps protect a retirement plan: without planning, an extended health care event can devastate years of retirement savings.
  • Gives people a choice about care: planning before an event enables people to receive care and benefits on their terms.
  • Eases the burden on family members: LTC insurance allows family members to care about... instead of care for their loved ones.

When your employees are able to plan for the possibility of needing LTC, you can benefit as well. LTC insurance can have a positive impact on productivity among employees who are working caregivers, plus help attract and retain key executives with a well-rounded benefits package.
