Tools to Help You Develop a Strategy
Working with over 500 professional and alumni members, we know we work with a highly educated clientele that wants to learn on their own. We have added several tools to help you learn more about the costs of long term care and the price of various solutions

To help you understand the risk you are trying to cover, there are two tools to help you learn about the current and future costs of care in your state or states you are considering retirementment.
Costs of Coverage
To get an idea on costs there are several rate calculator tools to give you an estimate on the premiums for each plan type.
Insurance vs. Self-Funding
Instead of insurance, could you set aside funds to pay for care on your own? This tool will help you calculate different returns and what you would need match the leverage of insurance.
