Marc joins me today to discuss and clarify the misconceptions about long-term care planning and insurance. He describes why long-term care services have greater inflation than other products and how financial advisors can approach a conversation with a client about policies. He discusses why financial advisors should work with long-term care specialists. He also explains how offering long-term care planning to clients can open up generational wealth planning opportunities for financial advisors and highlights why long-term care planning is one of the best business relationship-building tools for a financial advisor.
“Think of a long-term care policy as a gift to your family. I bought my policy as a gift to my wife, who was happy to know that if something happens to me, she will not feel burdened with providing care for me.” – Marc Glickman
