Long Term Care Vs Accelerate Death Benifit Re: Long Term Care Vs Accelerate Death Benifit
For starters, the accelerated death benefit is simply one way of you getting paid on your life insurance policy before you actually kick the bucket. How that benefit is triggered depends on the policy, e.g. terminal illness is the most common one that would make the ADB eligible to be used. Some policies offer the ADB with chronic or critical illnesses as the triggers. You have to make sure that you find out about the qualifying specifics.

Long Term Care is specifically for helping pay for services (e.g. skilled nursing care or assisted living) that you would need with the loss of your independence. Traditionally, benefits are triggered when you meet 2 of the 6 Activities of Daily Living requirements. Those are:
-Bathing
-Dressing
-Eating
-Transferring
-Continence
-Toileting

Cognitive impairment is another situation that would also trigger most LTC benefits.

Good luck!

Depends on your situation and what you are trying to accomplish. You really should speak with an LTC agent that can go over all of your options.

If you are asking if LTC insurance versus an acceleration of benefit rider, you need to look at the particular rider, the cost and triggers to benefits.

You generally get more LTC protection with LTC insurance versus acceleration of death benefit riders such as LTC/Chronic illness/Etc.

If you are talking about traditional LTC, then no. If you mean a rider on a life policy, yes.

They do not have traditional LTC. It is an acceleration of benefit rider. I believe a chronic illness rider and not sure if they still have the LTC rider.
