In today’s corporate world, savvy companies are continually looking for the competitive edge in benefits – something they can offer to attract and retain top employees as well as set them apart in the marketplace. Facing unparalleled challenges in the work force, companies know they can ill afford to spend years attracting key executives, only to lose them to the competition. One of the best ways to combat this is by offering a comprehensive, unique benefits package that delivers powerful incentives. What many companies are finding is that Long Term Care Insurance (LTCI) is emerging as the “hot” benefit.
You take great pride in providing your employees with 401K plans, retirement programs, health insurance and other benefits. But what’s the greatest risk to your employees? The devastating cost of long-term care. The simple fact is people are living longer, which brings on a whole new set of challenges. Whether it’s the routines of daily living, Alzheimer’s Disease or other dementia, your employees may require financial help in taking care of themselves or a loved one.
Long Term Care Insurance provides a range of benefits, including tax advantages to both your company as well as your employees. In addition, it can also serve as an important factor in ensuring your key employees stay with you for the long term. According to the Health Insurance Association of America, employee-sponsored Long Term Care Insurance plans are growing at a rate of 32% per year.
