KIRKLAND, Wash., April 18, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- An updated workplace guide, announced today, describes the tax, productivity, and other benefits of adding the "missing link" to employee benefit packages: long-term care insurance. Titled "Long Term Care Outreach and Education Program," the 12-page guide is published by LTC Financial Partners, LLC (LTCFP), one of America's most experienced long-term care insurance agencies.
"For many organizations, the tax advantages alone can make a difference of hundreds to hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, depending on their size," says Denise Gott, LTCFP's National Sales Manager. "Our updated guide explains why."
Businesses have the choice of providing the tax-favored insurance just for the owners and their spouses and dependents; or to key individuals (in an "executive carve out"); or to all employees.
The guide details the advantages and requirements of each option. The organization may choose to pay all, some, or none of the premiums. When employees pay, they generally enjoy a group rate and simplified underwriting. The tax benefits apply, in varying ways, to sole proprietorships, partnerships, C-corporations, S-corporations, limited liability companies, charities and other non-profits including associations.
Beyond tax savings, the guide describes bottom-line business benefits ranging from employee satisfaction and retention to increased "presenteeism" and productivity. "Having LTC insurance puts employees at ease, knowing there's a way to pay for care without jeopardizing their 401k's," says Gott. "They can focus on work instead of worrying about an incapacitated family member."
LTC insurance, traditionally purchased by individuals on their own, is fast becoming a workplace product. The average age of applicants has been trending downward, from the mid 60's to the mid 50's. "Younger people, still vital in the workforce, are seeing the value," says Gott. "So are their employers."
