Women live longer than men. As a result, women are more likely to reach an age where they will be without a spouse and require long term care.
Over two-thirds (67.5%) of LTC insurance individual claim dollars are paid to women.
These statistics point to the fact that women really need to buy long term care insurance. It is well known that women are usually the caregivers for a spouse, friend or loved one when they have a chronic illness. This creates stress and physical hardship to the caregiver if the person receiving care is totally dependent on them. Often, the caregiver ends up needing care as well.
