I know insurance is not investing but it is part of my overall financial planning for retirement. It is difficult to find information on this subject and much of it is conflicting. Any feedback would be appreciated.

oldsis,
Your local Health Insurance Counseling & Advocacy Program (HICAP) is a volunteer group that can assist you with unbiased advice. Also your local Area Agency on Aging can assist and advise without costs.
One other thing to consider, if available in your state, is a Partnership Long Term Care Policy which provides some asset protection by partnering with private insurance and Medicaid.


Frank(Good Luck with planning)
