Meeting with Steve stress asking in his team members 804 by seven. 12 and 98. And stay tuned because we're gonna have some more books to give way to we have not forgotten about that read more about us save money Texas dot com. We -- -- time magazine recently described a long term care as the retirement crisis that nobody wants to talk about. The article points out that while some baby boomers are on track to retire Contra Blake. That often changes later in life as he paid huge amounts are nursing home care or home health aides. Steve how can retirees make sure they're prepared for this possibilities scary. It really -- and if anyone knows that it can happen to your family it's or someone in your family it's made. You've heard me talk about mr. recent weeks and my mother had a massive stroke. And ended up -- the nursing home because of the answers. Right now still basically in therapy but it unfortunately is gonna end up and nursing home. In the cost are just tremendous were just there -- -- in the process of sorting out of the different nursing homes in the midwest. And their cost and what they provide this for our services and what have you. And in the midwest itself who Woodward we run into there which is from what mark clients who have talked to me about here in Austin. Is right around the same and that's almost 8000 dollars a month. The fortune. It income white coats from misfortune move easily and very quickly when you start looking there an average stay -- two and a half years. And there -- more more talking and 8000 that's tonight in over 90096000. Dollars a year. Almost a 100000 -- a year. The white part a quarter of a million dollars doesn't take very long. And unfortunately if that Israel has been a wife and -- to both on your whereupon I -- million dollars and so it is an area that that. Asked to be looked has to be considered. And and the reason being and of course issues mourners. Why you have to look at is because of Medicare. If you're on Medicare if you're 65 or older and on Medicare. Medicare will not allow you to stand -- hospital for any length of time anymore. So if you're not well. Then you still need treatment where you can ago. And it's going to be unfortunately in the -- that rehab or -- long term care facility and arsenal facility. And that's -- this serious becomes so important is -- Porsche basically. And health care system the way it is to drive people into these facilities. And -- 'cause of this and of course the cost. And because in this. Course the cost had gone up dramatically as well. And people think OK well we got Medicare alone -- from Medicare. If you're an approved facility if you had to do in rehab and and -- proving you've got to my hundred tensions you bought a hundred days it's a match from 100 days and after that you're on your own. And when you look at being pushed in that area and you know what's gonna happen where you're gonna go we're aware of these funds going to come from his. In essence that how are you gonna pay for this. And the cost number one of course whose -- we look at long term care insurance. And then would normally think a long term care we think of Panama for Kramer annual premium. And pursue maximum dollar per day per benefits and national congress were you issued a choice of the ballpark most -- from a three year structure for summer for a longer period of time. But just this week. We have more carriers who -- that we worked with in the past that. That are seen in the past news on their policies are current policies. Are going to go up from anywhere from eighteen to 40%. It. Now how do you budget that he. -- in addition -- that what they have done this turnaround and said okay we're. New contracts or were offering new people in one of the insured for long term care. What they're doing is decreasing the benefits. Decrease in the length of time. And decrease in all the policies all the way throughout. So you can see what's happening with these cost. So the good news there is set there is other options and other Bobble alternatives it's she'd had enough of to pay for these expenses. So we can look at other types of protection along those laws whether some of murder even done through life insurance to. So they can be handled through annuities over a lifetime income interest -- reform we're gonna talk about that for a second that's. With a lifetime income what a lot of them are doing is doubling their benefits for doubling their income to help offset those costs. So there is always who compare. Tell you that area but it's something you have to take advantage of prior to get into the nursing home or having an illness or stroke or whatever the case -- be. And you look at other ways to really other options are not very excited and all sort of say and that's. Just basically going to the checkbook and write now to check -- -- broke my I don't think very many people -- going on that ruled no more. Unfortunately it happens all way too often. When we look at the veterans. -- course everybody knows what's going on there today. And what's happening and in that area and of course the cutbacks are tremendous and it is getting tougher to qualify for. Used in the veteran benefits firm for Euro long term care in skilled care. NN medical assistance from Medicaid. Which is better known as is really getting -- You know I mean you have to be destitute to get to qualify today from Medicaid they have just change dramatically and toughened up to the the approved lenders and everything else there for a qualified for. Medical assistance. So and that those areas -- if you spend everything that's an option that you know that you do have to -- -- But to get it basically you know you and are going to be able hide assets for anything culture. Give away assets were. Anything along those lines and include 510 years ago over twenty years ago especially. Today it's completely change so people really going to shock when they find out and actually what. Is available -- government programs because it's English your -- basically the charisma. So you do have to somehow. Set down make sure that that. Is somehow protected. Whether again you know we do -- through insurance for two or through other assets or whatever the case would be -- -- an area that does have to be addressed. In this book that I have understanding social security and Medicare.
