Unlike traditional long-term care insurance, your policy costs are set at issue and will never increase. Your policy provides benefits — even if you never need care, provided all planned premiums are paid.
Linked – By paying an initial lump sum premium, you immediately create a death benefit for your beneficiaries and a pool of money to pay for covered long term care needs.
You’ve got benefits
If you need long-term care
You get more for your money because your policy provides income tax-free reimbursements for qualified long-term care expenses worth more than your premium payments. 1 There’s no deductible or waiting period, which could make a real difference in your total out-of-pocket costs for qualified long-term care expenses.
If you don’t need long-term care
Your policy provides an income tax-free death benefit. Your children, or other loved ones, designated as beneficiaries, will receive a legacy. 2 The death benefit would be reduced by any loans, withdrawals and benefits paid.
If you change your mind
You have options. You may choose to:
Maximize your long-term care benefits — A return of 80% of your paid premiums is available once all planned premiums are paid. 3
— OR —
Maximize your return of premium — 100% of return of premium is available after year 5 provided all planned premiums are paid; additional cost applies. 3 Lincoln Website
