Creating an LTC Plan by Exchanging Your Tax Deferred Annuity To One With A Tax Qualified Unlimited Long Term Care Rider
Client Profile: Ted is 72 and Jane is 68. They have planned well and their children are grown and financially independent. Their portfolio is conservatively invested. They are interested in asset preservation. They just reviewed their Medicare and Medicare Supplement policy and they are concerned about their “exposure” to long-term care.
Objectives: Protecting their retirement income by plugging up the holes in Medicare that expose their nest egg to un-insured LTC expenses.
Strategy: Cover both Ted and Jane with a 1035 exchange of their $ 103,500 Annuity (out of surrender with cost basis of $ 60,000) to a One America Annuity with a “tax qualified” LTC rider. Since this is a tax qualified LTC policy, the gain in the annuity can be sheltered.
