Women Need to Start Planning for Their Long-Term Care
Long-term care insurance helps people cover the expenses of care associated with chronic illness or disability. Since women tend to live longer than men, on average 4 years longer, it is important that they take long-term care planning into consideration early on. In this issue, educate yourself about long-term care so that you can make the right decision for you and your family. Also in this issue, learn about new online Social Security services.
The National Retirement Planning Coalition (NRPC), a group of prominent education, consumer advocacy and financial services organizations led by the Insured Retirement Institute, has created a 6-month Retirement Planning Campaign. WISER will be participating in this campaign, which will run from April through September, to bring you lots of good information on different areas relating to retirement.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau recently released a report titled, Senior Designations for Financial Advisers: Reducing Consumer Confusion and Risks. The report makes recommendations to Congress to help facilitate and improve the ability of older consumers to sort out and assess the numerous and varying “senior designation” titles that financial advisers use to market their services.
