Hybrid Annuity/Long Term Care

This is a wondrful way to protest against the cost of Long Term Care without paying high premiums on a LTC Policy.

You would transfer an current investment to this Annuity. The Annuity pays an interest rate on your investment. There is a small premium that pays for the Long Term Care Rider. If you need Care at home, Assisted Living or Nursing Home the policy will pay 3 times your investment for Care. 


$100,000.00 investment would payout 3 times for Long Term Care = $300,000.00
