Long-Term Care Insurance – Protection From Living Too Long in Virginia

The biggest mistake often made with long-term care planning is putting it off until health issues can make LTC planning much more costly or impossible to qualify for. When you consider the potential
Old as methesuelahfinancial impact of not planning for long-term care, planning for LTC should be an important part of any retirement plan.

Planning for the golden years is about a lot of things, many of them being important “finally I get to …” moments. However, before you tackle that “bucket list,” be sure to nail down some important financial considerations. For example, how would you pay for long-term care if needed?

Increasingly, one of the most important considerations is planning for the possibility and costs of long-term care. It is becoming the cornerstone of new later-in-life financial plans for many retiring and retired Americans.

MarketWatch recently surveyed this concern in a article titled “Long-term care planning [is] too vital to ignore.

You see, the math is fairly simple. People are living longer and, therefore, so are their financial needs later-in-life.  Meanwhile, healthcare is still disastrously expensive, especially at that life stage.

As a result, if you only plan for your retirement and for your estate, but not also for your later-in-life
and potentially long-term care needs, then you find yourself in financial jeopardy later. You could have more life left at the end of your money, to be blunt.

As the title of the original article notes, including long-term care planning as part of your retirement
planning is simply “too vital to ignore.” 

You can learn more about this topic as well as other strategies on our website under the tab entitled: elder law planning in Virginia. Be sure you also sign up for our complimentary e-newsletter so that you may be informed of all the latest issues that could affect you, your loved ones and your estate planning.

Request a free consultation

We hate spam too. We will never share or sell your information.

We've been putting together as many resources as possible so that we can continue to help:

  • If you’re a current client with a signing appointment or a prospective client with a consultation and would prefer that meeting take place in your own home, we can accomplish that with a little bit of pre-planning on our part and with the addition of a laptop, smartphone, tablet or other computer in your home to facilitate this virtual meeting. For those of you that need to sign legal documents, that too can be accomplished with the use of a webcam (FaceTime etc.), so that we can witness and electronically notarize all of your important legal documents.
  • We launched the rollout of our on-demand webinar early so that new clients and our allied professionals can view the important component parts of ‘an estate plan that works’ at their convenience.  That is available on our website.
  • Live video workshops will be produced as quickly as possible and certainly ahead of our previous schedule; we will keep you posted as these events become available. Given the ‘boutique’ nature of the firm, we rarely have more than ten people in our office including team members at any one time. During this period of ‘social distancing,’ we promise to have no more than 8 people at any time.   This allows us to comply with the Governor’s directive to limit in-person gatherings.
  • The best way to communicate with us is still by phone during regular office hours of 8:30 to 5:00, Monday through Friday, or, you can email any of our team members (that is, their first name followed by @zarembalaw.com).  We will respond to these emails as quickly as possible.
  • Please continue to follow the directives of our local, state, and federal agencies. For your health and in consideration of our team who is assisting you, if you’ve scheduled an office appointment or planned to drop off paperwork and are experiencing a fever, dry cough, or shortness of breath, please contact your primary care doctor for guidance and then our office to reschedule.

Thank you, Walt and the Zaremba Team

The unprecedented coronavirus pandemic has taken our entire country by surprise. We understand how difficult this time is for America’s businesses and families.  However, we believe it is vitally important that we make every effort possible to continue to offer solutions that avoid disrupting our important partnership with you, your family and friends.  As you know, estate planning is not something that should wait for a more convenient time, therefore the opportunity to address your important goals both during and after this crisis should not wait.  To that end, we have added the option of a ‘virtual consultation’ to our office process.  You will now have a choice of either meeting with us in our office or in the comfort of your own home.
