Looking for a Smart Long-term Care Solution?

The Pension Protection Act of 2006, or PPA, created a way for people to protect their retirement savings accounts from being drained by long-term care expenses using a new asset-based life insurance approach. The new PPA plans allow you to move money from an existing account – such as 401k, IRA, investments, or savings – to a new asset class that will generate up to 9x your money in tax-free benefits that pay for care.
