Passengers on Delta Airlines flights this fall are going to getan LTCI wake-up call as part of their in-flight entertainment.

|

In a special interview broadcast by Sky Radio on Delta flights,Denise Gott, chairman of the board of LTC Financial Partners LLC(LTCFP), talks on the importance of long term care insurance. Aspecial video on the topic is also appearing on CNN airportbroadcasts at several U.S. airports.

|

The message is this: In America 3 in 4 of us need long term careafter we turn 65. But most of us aren't insured for it, and waitingto insure carries great risks.

|

"Even promised reforms will not solve what is considered thesingle biggest financial risk Americans face," Gott says in theawareness video.

|

Long term care insurance plans have a history of growing invalue over time. Because of inflation, a policy purchased a fewyears ago is worth more today, Gott emphasizes in her Sky Radiointerview. And, if you wait too long to apply, you might no longerqualify.

|

Other points of the message include:

  • Rates depend on age. "If you sign up at age 40, you pay age-40rates for the life of the policy." Waiting ups the rate, whichcould cost you a bundle.
  • Tax benefits should not be overlooked. "Federal and state taxdeductions or credits may be available to you. If you qualify, youcan take them every year, year after year, once you're covered." Sowhy wait? Why not start getting those benefits now?
