Preparing for long-term care expenses with an annuity 

Your clients have made some smart decisions with your guidance by saving and investing, which has resulted in the ability to generate a comfortable income to live on during retirement.


If they no longer need a portion of their nest egg for retirement expenses, it might be time for them to consider repositioning some of those assets toward potential extended care or long-term care needs while simultaneously keeping an asset if care isn’t needed. Our Annuity Care options offer your clients the ability to transfer existing savings or other assets to a special type of annuity that combines long-term asset growth with long-term care benefits.

  • Single premium option

    You clients have the option to use existing assets, such as a CD, savings or another annuity, as a one-time-only premium payment and avoid ongoing, non-guaranteed premium payments

  • Added value for care

    Your client’s accumulated value grows at a guaranteed minimum interest rate; at the same time, the funds for long-term care expenses are credited at an even higher interest rate

  • Tax-free benefits

    Maximize efficiency of client dollars using a non-qualified annuity for long-term care expenses. Clients pay no income tax if the annuity is used for qualifying long-term care expenses, regardless of the deferred gain (subject to monthly maximums, and premiums funded after-tax)

Long-term care protection using annuities

If a client experiences a health event and does not have a long-term care strategy in place to address the need, their family members could become their caregivers. In addition, retirement assets that have taken clients so long to save could be in jeopardy due to extended care needs. Our Annuity Care product portfolio allows clients to use annuity policy values to help address long-term care expenses.

  • The Pension Protection Act and Annuity Care 

    The Pension Protection Act, also known as Public Law 109-280, is a wide-ranging piece of legislation signed into law August 17, 2006. While much of the law deals with changes and reforms to pension governance, Section 844 of the act deals specifically with annuities, long-term care and tax advantages. As of January 1, 2010, cash value withdrawals from specific annuity contracts to pay for qualifying long-term care expenses or to pay qualifying long-term care insurance premiums, are no longer taxable income but considered as a reduction of cost basis. Benefit payments from long-term care insurance riders are also not taxable. This makes considering Annuity Care as part of your client’s long-term care protection a prudent financial strategy.
