A Gift to You and Your Family:

Long Term Care Benefits 

 

When you're 80 how old will your children be? Will they be caring for children of their own or getting ready for retirement? Long Term Care coverage may seem like something you give yourself but the truth is that both you and your family will benefit from it. Or maybe you're single without children, who will help with your care needs? Long Term Care coverage provides you with the financial support to increase your care options.

The reality is that as Americans live longer more of us need Long Term Care. While studies show that children and spouses are intimately involved in Long Term Care, studies also show that caregivers experience more rewards when they function as care managers instead of care providers. Long Term Care benefits mean you'll be able to afford Home Health Care, Residential, or Nursing Home Care instead of asking your loved ones to take care of your daily needs or pay for your care from their budgets. Instead of the stress of a daily care provider your loved ones can function as a care manager and focus on meaningful interaction.

If you choose a Long Term Care Plan now, your payments will be lower, you'll earn more benefit COLAs and you might even have it paid off before you retire.

For more information on Long Term Care benefits and cost, visit NPFBA's website www.NPFBA.org or call 1-877-582-0003, option #2.    

Keep Holiday Stress to a Minimum:
Learn to Say No

Before your holiday stress levels start to rise, learn these 4 simple tactics for saying no to unnecessary obligations.

 

For many of us, the holidays were magical in childhood, carefree times to be savored. But then we grew into hordes of harried adults, falling victim to the season's high expectations. Holiday stress has become as much a tradition as the Christmas ham.

 

"People are overcommitted," says Marc D. Skelton, PhD, PsyD, a psychologist in Laguna Niguel, Calif. "Christmas and other holidays around this time are always supposed to be fun, and you're supposed to do a good job in terms of entertaining friends and family."

 

In an attempt to live up to the season's tall orders, "people will just run from pillar to post," he says. It's not even "Christmas" anymore, some of his clients lament. It's "Stressmas."
