Five Reasons Employers Should Learn about Long-Term Care Insurance

Posted on February 7th, 2010 by Em-Power Services

What does your employees’ current compensation package look like? What does yours look like? There are five main reasons employers should take a few moments to understand and evaluate long-term care insurance.

  1. Long-term care insurance, or insurance that addresses the enormous gap in traditional healthcare coverage, is an often misunderstood and overlooked component in financial planning and health care protection.
  2. More than half of American workers will experience a need for long-term insurance coverage in their lifetimes and yet many of them will not realize this until it is too late.
  3. There are employer-sponsored benefit programs with significant advantages that can be implemented without any cost to your company. At the same time, business owners can selectively pay for coverage for themselves and key employees while receiving generous Federal tax deductions as part of a strategy to reward and retain your most valued people.
  4. Educating your employees on the hole that exist in their current long term financial and health planning builds goodwill toward your company.
  5. You can offer group insurance rates to your employees on a voluntary basis, meaning it does not cost your company anything to offer this protection while employees will receive coverage at a better price through you than if they were to purchase it independently.

We are happy to arm you with the questions you need to ask of your current benefit provider. Are you aware of the hole in your coverage that may leave you unprotected and financially vulnerable?

Employers Filling the Benefits Gap with Long Term Care Insurance Coverage

Posted on January 21st, 2010 by Em-Power Services

Many businesses offer their employees health and life insurance policies as well as sponsored savings programs. Employees have been conditioned to tuck away, grow, and protect whatever savings they can and many companies match what their people contribute on their own. But there is a hole in that safety net they surround themselves with, and it is not at all evident until someone falls through it.

This is where that one person in two who experiences a long-term health care issue, whether it be from an illness or accident, dementia, or a host of other physical problems, finds both financial misfortune and a devastating conundrum.

This is where, statistically speaking, half of us will find ourselves devoid of long-term assistance, quickly out of our life’s savings, and straining the relationships around us. It’s the part of future planning that gets neglected and that no current plan other than LTCI will address. And it’s why long-term care insurance is a benefit more and more companies are offering.

As an employer who wishes to offer its employees comprehensive benefits, is LTCI something that would add value to your organization? Could LTCI enhance benefits packages and make your company progressive in practice and aggressive in retaining key players?
