A SUM180 member recently asked us about long term care insurance. “Is it worth it? Couldn’t I just start saving in an IRA or Roth IRA account myself, and eventually use that for long term care?” Here’s how I see it.
Women on average have $25,000 in investments for their retirement, while men have $37,000 on average for retirement. Neither number is enough. The good news is, for most people, there’s a way to make it work, with the right amount of planning.
