The third in a series of long term care insurance informational guides is being made available free of charge to consumers.
According to Jesse Slome, author of the series of consumer guides and executive director of the the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance, the guides offer the latest and most relevant information in a balanced and easy to understand manner.
"This is the first generation of Americans who in very large numbers are living into their 80s, 90s and their 100s," Slome one of the nation's leading LTC experts notes. "As a result, this is really the first generation that needs to prepare for the consequences of living a long life and that includes long term care."
The latest guide, Fresh Perspectives On Long Term Care Planning explain various options and considerations. "We like to say that long-term care planning is something everyone age 50 or older needs to do, but we acknowledge that long term care insurance
is not the universal solution for all," Slome adds. "But if you understand how to take advantage of discounts and newer options and features available, the coverage can be more affordable than many people think."
The just-published guide explains some of the newer inflation growth options introduced recently by leading insurers. "Few people understand the many different discounts and ways to reduce the cost of coverage," Slome explains.
The informational guides can be accessed via the Association's website. To view the latest or prior long term care insurance guides go to www.aaltci.org/long-term-care-insurance-costs

Founded in 1998, the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance is the national trade organization established to educate both consumers and financial professionals. The organization's online Consumer Information Center has been nationally recognized as the nation's most comprehensive resource for current information on the topic.
