The Value of Mutual of Omaha Long Term Care Insurance
As your clients age, they may need help with things you’ve always been able to do yourself – shopping for groceries, fixing meals, cleaning the house. You may also need help with personal services, like bathing, dressing or taking medications. A long-term care insurance policy is designed to help you pay for these types of services.
A MutualCare® insurance policy can help keep your clients connected to the things that are most important. Supplementing their out-of-pocket costs with the benefits of a long-term care insurance policy may allow them to balance the help they receive from family members with professional services, stay at home as long as possible and protect a portion of their retirement nest egg.
