Sales idea: Hybrid Long Term Care solutions

Your clients want to live out the last days of their life as comfortably and with as much dignity as possible. Whether they require to stay in an assisted living facility, or just need some extra assistance home, preparation can reduce the expense and burden of long-term care on your loved ones.

Although many agents recommend Long Term Care insurance to their clients, many consumers aren’t sold on the idea of buying such protection, partly because of the potential money wasted if they don’t end up needing the services. Fortunately, hybrid Long Term Care policies offer an alternative to traditional LTC.

Hybrid policies have grown more popular in recent years, attracting consumers with the promise that if policyholders don’t end up needing long term care, their beneficiary will receive a death benefit.

A great solution for your clients is OneAmerica’s asset-based products, which provide long term care benefits if care is needed. However, if your clients never need care, their assets will then pass to the next generation — making asset-based long term care an innovative alternative to traditional long term care insurance.

OneAmerica’s asset protection solutions

OneAmerica offers a variety of asset-based long-term
care products referred to as Care Solutions®. This product suite uses existing assets to fund whole-life or annuity contracts to provide clients with options on how to fund their LTC protection.
