That may depend on the long-term care insurance you choose today. Like most people, you probably recognize the need for long-term care insurance. It's not simply "nursing home" coverage, but insurance that helps assure you of continued independence as you age - without depleting the personal assets you've worked hard to acquire. But choosing the right protection from the many plans available can be a daunting task. Long Term Care Resources has partnered with Mortar Board National College Senior Honor Society to offer a comprehensive Long Term Care Program. MBNCSHS members are entitled to a special discount on certain LTC plans available through this program. Call Long Term Care Resources today to receive a FREE MBNCSHS Long Term Care Planning Kit.
