AARP Long-Term Care Insurance

Anyone over the age of 50 is eligible to join AARP and undoubtedly (if yuou are over that age) you either belong or have received multiple solicitations to join. As stated on their website, "AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization with a membership that helps people age 50 and over have independence, choice and control in ways that are beneficial and affordable to them and society as a whole, ways that help people 50 and over improve their lives."

AARP is also a major player in the insurance industry and collects $400 million a year in fees for lending its name to various private insurance policies, including long-term care insurance. As with all insurance and financial products you are considering, it is well worth the time to read as much as you can and ask questions about both the pros and cons.
