You create a brighter future. We work to protect it. 

Let us help find the right Long-Term Care insurance plan for you, so you can spend time on things that matter the most.

People are living longer these days, but as life expectancies increase, so does the risk of serious health problems that could require long-term care. In fact, at retirement age, 70% of Americans will need long-term care and 40% will enter a nursing home.The average cost for nursing home care in a private room is currently $92,378 per year and increasing on average 3% per year.Retirement planning is a necessity and overlooked healthcare costs can dramatically affect your retirement plans if left unaccounted for. With soaring healthcare costs, insurance restrictions and the desire to stretch retirement savings through more years... it's a good idea to seriously consider this valuable coverage while receiving a member premium discount. 

D.C. Bar and Long Term Care Resources work together to provide members with a comprehensive long term care program that gives members the stability and flexibility they need to protect their future. Members also have access to an interactive and educational Long-Term Care evaluation tool to help them make the best decisions for their specific situation.

To learn more about how members can help protect their assets from the rising cost of long-term care, call 800-616-8759, or visit http://educationcenter.ltcr.com/?id=dcbar
