Georgia Long-Term Care: Programs, Policies, and Partnerships

Overview

Few issues are more compelling than the need for long-term care. As our population ages, and as more and more people live longer in their retirement years, ever-larger numbers will be forced to confront this issue. The question is, will they be prepared? Are you, as a producer or financial advisor, ready and able to counsel your clients and prospects on long-term care and the options available for funding and delivering that care?

This course provides a thorough orientation to long-term care and the many options available to address this need. Designed specifically for the licensed insurance professional to meet long-term care and partnership training requirements, the course details the facts and facets of long-term care: what it is, how it is provided, and how it can be funded. It explores the nature of long-term care, LTC services and providers, LTC insurance, partnership programs, and qualified partnership policies. The course also includes an in-depth discussion of the ethics and suitability standards associated with the sale of LTC insurance.
