Free State-Sponsored Forums

on Long-Term Care Insurance and Retirement Planning


If you are seeking information on how to plan for future long-term care costs, you will want to attend one of the public forums, “The Missing Link in Retirement Planning - Why and When to Consider Long-Term Care Insurance.” These forums will be held on April 4th in Ellington (Hall Memorial Library), April 19th in Waterford (Waterford Public Library) and April 25th in Litchfield (Oliver Wolcott Library). The programs will start at 6:00 P.M.  (Doors will open at 5:30 P.M.) The State of Connecticut, in conjunction with the Hall Memorial Library, Waterford Public Library and the Oliver Wolcott Library, will present these free, two-hour sessions. The programs are open to the general public. No insurance sales will take place.


By attending one of these forums, you will gain a better understanding of: (1) the risks and costs of nursing home and home care and why it’s important to consider these long-term care factors in retirement planning; (2) what you need to know before buying long-term care insurance; and (3) the State’s innovative program, the Connecticut Partnership for Long-Term Care, and how it can add to your long-range financial security.  You will benefit from this forum if you are between 40 and 65 years of age and have (or plan to have) assets of at least $75,000 (excluding car and home).
