A new guide for consumers just published by the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance explores ways to convert existing annuity and life insurance policies into protection that can also provide tax free long-term care insurance benefits.

Los Angeles, CA, February 14, 2018 — A new guide exploring the benefits of a 1035 exchange as part of long-term care insurance planning has just been made available by the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance.

The guide is designed to be of value to the millions of older Americans who have a current annuity or life insurance policy but have failed to undertake any long-term care insurance planning.

“Americans have $2.8 Trillion in annuities that could be repurposed to continue accruing value but now would also provide a tax-free long-term care insurance benefit,” explains Jesse Slome, director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance (AALTCI). The national organization has just released the Guide To Long-Term Care Planning Using 1035 Exchanges.

Those who have cash value life insurance policies can also gain valuable insights from the guide. “Individuals who bought a life insurance policy when their children were young find that need for protection no longer exists,” Slome notes. “The 1035 guide explains how to repurpose an existing life insurance policy to one that has both a death benefit for beneficiaries in addition to a tax-free long term care benefit that be of significant value.”
