It's never too early to plan

The median cost of home healthcare is more than $45,000 per year.  Just a couple of years could have a major impact on your retirement savings. When you need Long Term Care and do not have a dedicated funding solution, it is estimated that the average withdrawal rate from a retirement income portfolio jumps from 5% to 11%.

Care planning affects more than retirees.

Consider this:


of individuals turning age 65 will need care during their lifetime.1


of parents expect their children to care for them physically or financially as they age.2

Age 49

is the average age of a caregiver, and more than 75% of caregivers are women.
