Connecticut Partnership for Long Term Care

You have your 401(k), Your diversified portfolio, Your retirement nest egg...

You’ve thought of everything – except for how to protect these assets should you need long-term care. It’s a fact: Just one year in a Connecticut nursing home can cost more than $162,100.   And Medicare and health insurance may only cover a fraction of these costs.

Now there's a way to protect your life’s savings. If you’re 40 or older, long-term care insurance approved by the State’s Connecticut Partnership for Long-Term Care should be part of your retirement plan.  These policies assure you of the highest quality standards.  They’re affordable and provide asset protection, protect against inflation, and – most important – give you peace of mind through your retirement years.

Aldo Pantano, from the CT Partnership for Long-Term Care, with the State Office of Policy and Management will explain how the State’s Partnership for Long-Term Care can help you plan ahead for your future long term care needs. 

No company specific products will be discussed, and there will be no sales or solicitations allowed – just information that you should know. 

 

Zoom meeting information will be emailed to our newsletter subscribers, registered attendees, and by request. The Library is taking security measures to make this the best experience possible. Please note that programming may be affected or cancelled due to COVID-19.
