Am I Over or Under-Insured?

Protecting your assets is essential and proper insurance coverage is imperative. However, there is a point where people can have too much insurance and be over-insured. Not only is it unnecessary, but it can also cause more damage than protection.

Frequently asked questions.
You are required to file for Medicare at the age of 65.
Statistics will tell you that approximately 50% of retirees will spend some amount of time in a long-term care facility or will need some sort of in-home healthcare. However, we advise to not let this be the reason for buying long-term care insurance. To determine whether long-term care insurance is needed you must first complete a comprehensive retirement analysis.
There are many ways in which you can buy health insurance with the most common being the open enrollment period of your employer’s plan. After retirement, however, our options change. The days of your employer covering you (and your spouse) at a reduced rate is most likely not going to be an option. One thing to consider is that if you retire early (before the age of 65), you will not be eligible for Medicare and you will need to explore purchasing individual health care coverage. Remember, it is important to not to let your coverage lapse because if you have an accident or become ill, your only option to cover this expense may be to drain your retirement accounts that you’ve worked so hard to save.
A Medicare Supplement policy (Medigap), can be purchased through private companies. They are intended to assist you with health care costs and other things that regular Medicare doesn’t cover. Some examples of things Medigap might cover would be copayments, deductibles, or medical care when traveling, but it’s also important to remember they don’t cover everything.
