The Truth About Life Insurance

Long-Term Care Insurance

This isn’t necessary until you hit age 60. After that it becomes vital. A nursing home can cost about $50,000 a year per person. If you and your spouse go into an assisted living facility with $300,000 in life savings, you’ll have it used up so fast you won’t believe it.

If you are approaching 60, start looking at long-term care insurance. Don’t buy it before then (it’s not necessary enough at that point) or after (it can get too expensive).

Find a long term care insurance agent in your area who Dave recommends.

Homeowner’s/Renter’s Insurance

You should never own or rent property without having yourself covered in the case of a fire, flood, burglary or some other disaster. Renter’s insurance is relatively cheap to get, so make sure to have some.

When buying homeowner’s insurance, get one that has guaranteed replacement costs. If something happens to your home and you have a policy without guaranteed replacement costs, you will only be covered for the value of your home at the time you took out the policy. That’s bad news if your house has increased in value. Make sure to have your full emergency fund in place so you can take the lower premium and higher deductible on it.

Another important aspect of a sound financial plan is to keep your Legacy Drawer up to date. Learn what needs to be included in your Legacy Drawer, in addition to the insurance infomation above.
