Are you self-employed? Or do you own your own business? If so, you likely have a lot of challenges on your plate. You have to provide great service to your customers, prospect for new customers and manage your company’s cash flow. You also may have to manage your employees, develop new products and services and work to achieve your long-term goals. As a business owner, you probably wear many different hats.
Retirement may be one challenge that isn’t on your radar. Many business owners assume they can work as long as they want. They funnel their energy and resources into their business rather than plan for the future.
However, retirement is too important to ignore. You may not be able to work forever, and you may not be able to sell your business to fund your retirement. It’s always helpful to have assets set aside for retirement. Also, a business retirement plan may be a helpful tool to attract new employees.
Thinking about purchasing long-term care insurance? That could be a wise decision. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that today’s 65-year-olds have a 70 percent chance of needing long-term care at some point.1
Long-term care is ongoing assistance with basic, day-to-day living activities such as bathing, eating, mobility and more. It’s usually provided in an assisted living facility, but it can also be provided in the home, either by family members or by in-home health aides.
Regardless of where the care is provided, it’s usually a costly service. Long-term care often costs thousands of dollars per month, and care is often needed for years. It’s easy to see how it can be a long-term drain on your savings.
