Weekday evenings Erin Burnett, on her CNN Outfront program, talks about a number that one way or another may impact our lives. The number’s different every night, but they all play to our interest in quantifying important issues.
Numbers seem to be the first defense to thinking about long-term care insurance. I’ll wait until I’m older . . . It costs too much . . . I probably won’t need it and, if I do, I’ll pay for it myself . . . It doesn’t run in our family . . . I might not need it for 30 years.
And all of that might just be true. The catch is, if your number comes up, the financial consequences can be huge.
This site is about sharing with you some information that will, hopefully, help you sort out whether it makes any sense at this point in your life to plan for how you will pay the possible future costs of long-term care.
