A hybrid annuity/long-term care product can virtually eliminate the need for a standalone LTC policy, which means you don’t get asked the question, “What happens if I don’t use it?” These are usually fixed annuities with an additional rider that costs an extra 2-3% per year. Depending on the carrier, the LTC benefits pay out for a number of months or for the rest of the client’s life. Some policies can even be purchased with no underwriting. What’s the downside? The extra cost of the rider is going to cut into the interest earned by the annuity, but the simplicity and savings of not needing a standalone LTC policy are often enough to more than make up for it.
