Through a Support Service from LTC Financial Partners, Financial Advisors Promote the Big-Money Benefits of Long Term Care Insurance

KIRKLAND, WA (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — According to LTC Financial Partners LLC, Philip Kimball, Executive Director of the Society of Naval Architects & Marine Engineers, watched helplessly as over $1 million dollars disappeared into the health-care system: all the assets of his dying mom and dad. Like most Americans of more than modest means, Kimball and his parents had missed an estate planning gap. Their financial advisors missed it too. No long term care insurance (or LTCi, the industry nickname).

Kimball’s experience is not news. Millions can recount similar horror stories. What’s news is that many people like Kimball can now call their banker, accountant, attorney, or broker for help before it’s too late — thanks to a support service from LTC Financial Partners (LTCFP), the country’s most experienced long term care insurance brokerage.

With a network of 160-plus LTCi specialists at their disposal, financial advisors of all stripes are saving their clients from the health-care money drain. The proprietary support service, called the Long Term Care Outreach and Education Program(TM) (LTCOEP), is headed by Dan Cahn, founder and CEO of WorkLife Solutions, Microsoft’s first online HR resource center. Cahn is now Senior Vice President of Business Development for LTC Financial Partners.

Through LTCOEP, “financial advisors quickly learn which clients are at risk and how much money is at stake,” says Cahn. “Then they’re in a position to secure thousands or millions per client, depending on their age and situation; and they can do this with much greater certainty than the hottest stock advice or tax strategy.” Once financial advisors make the initial determination of financial potential, they call in one of Cahn’s associates, all certified long term care insurance specialists who average eight or more years’ experience, and who offer only one product, LTCi. The specialists then navigate the maze of homecare, payment and carrier options — considering the impact of the latest LTCi legislation and tax breaks. Tailored solutions are then presented to the clients on behalf of the financial advisors.

The support service has been adopted by a growing number of financial organizations including the NRL Federal Credit Union, the National Network of Estate Planning Attorneys, major banking chains, and national wire houses. In time, nearly all financial institutions will offer education on LTCi as a buffer to the rising costs of long term health-care, Cahn believes. “The wholesale model is not right for financial advisors who want to do the right thing for their clients,” says Cahn. “One size does not fit all. LTCFP offers a tailored retail solution by matching each client with an LTCi specialist who really responds to the individual’s situation. So far we’re supporting more than 5,000 financial advisors and expect the number to double in the next few months.”
