Can I Afford To Self Insure The Risk?


Often people think they can save the money that they would have spent on long-term care insurance premiums and invest it to meet their future long-term care needs. Although this sounds good in theory several problems exist. First, a long-term care plan must be a plan you can depend on to meet your future needs not one that might possibly meet those needs.  It is impossible to save enough money, even with interest, to equal the benefits that could be paid out under an Unlimited Long Term Care Insurance policy.  Even under optimum conditions, your savings would barely provide 1 year of long term care. And you could never enjoy that money, it would always have to remain in reserves should a long-term care need arise.

When trying to put this idea into practical application several factors must happen to insure its success.

  • You can never miss a savings payment to your investment fund.

  • You must consistently receive a high enough return on your money.

  • You must make sure you donít need care until you have enough money saved to pay for it.


Even if you could guarantee all of the conditions above, which you canít, you still would not be able to put enough money away even with a great rate of return to pay for an extended long-term care stay that lasted much over a year.
