My husband and I are in our fifties. A few years ago we were looking for affordable California Long Term Care premiums. We did our research, decided to take the plunge and purchased Long Term Care insurance (LTCI). Most of our friends are in the same age range. I am often asked at social events how much the yearly premium is and people are surprised to hear that our premiums for our plans are $100 each per month.
The average premium for LTCI is between $150 – $300 per month. Everyone I talk to has heard that LTCI is expensive and expects to hear a number much higher. However, with the help of a licensed agent, you can find affordable California Long Term Care Insurance for around $150 per month.
The premium depends on many factors. For example my car insurance could be a lot more expensive than it is but I chose coverage that keeps the premium lower and searched for discounts that would help, like a good student discount for our teenager. LTCI is similar. Some companies offer better deals than others depending on your situation. Your health and marital status can impact the premium. However, the biggest factor besides the coverage you select is your age; the younger you are when you purchase LTCI the lower the premium you pay throughout your lifetime.
Besides the peace of mind, another thing that helps us my husband and I feel better about purchasing LTCI is that the premiums are tax deductible as a business expense.
