long term care insurance rates 1The younger you purchase Long Term Care, the lower your long term care insurance rates will be and your benefits will be larger. Policy amounts vary tremendously depending on age and options, but at age 65, you could pay $1000 a year for every $50,000 to $100,000 in benefits which is “pennies on the dollar” and if you buy a “State Partnership” policy you can protect your assets from Medicaid Estate Recovery dollar for dollar of the benefit amount of the policy, not what you are paying for the policy. Remember. also that you don’t need unlimited coverage, you just need coverage to protect the amount of your assets.

Buy younger and save on long term care insurance rates:

Many people who do not buy long term care policies when they are younger and healthier develop medical conditions and are refused coverage later by the Long Term Care Insurance companies. Your Long Term Care Insurance rates will be less when you are young, and the policy will be worth much more because it will compound much more. Example from the New York State Department of Financial Services with the following details Genworth 8000 NYP $300 a day/ 2 years nursing home / 4 year home care/ compounded 3.5%/ elimination period 90 days/ partnership policy/ male/ age of purchase 55 and 65 :  

    • Age 55 premium:                  $2767 Total Premiums paid by 85: $83,010     ($2767 x 30 years)
    • Initial Value of Policy:           $219,000   ($300 a day x 365 x 2 years)
    • Value of Policy at 85 due to 3.5% compounding:         $547,000


  • Age 65 premium:                 $4415 Total Premiums paid by 85: $88,300     ($4415 x 20 years)
  • Initial Value of Policy:          $219,000   ($300 a day x 365 x 2 years)
  • Value of Policy at 85 due to 3.5% compounding:         $438,000

As can be seen in this example you will save $5000 buy buying the policy 10 years earlier, and the earlier you buy the policy, the less you pay in premiums, and more importantly your benefits are larger.
