Looking Into The Long Term

Sunday, October 15, 2006

When you're shopping for long-term-care insurance, look for:

* Whether the policy is adjusted for inflation;

* Flexibility about where services are delivered;

* What happens if you miss a premium;

* The provider's credit rating, which indicates how sound the company is and how likely it will be around when it's time to draw benefits.
