When choosing a product, make sure that life insurance and long-term care insurance needs are met. Because personal situations may change (i.e., marriage, birth of a child or job promotion), so can life insurance and long-term care insurance needs. Care should be taken to ensure these strategies and products are suitable. Associated costs, as well as personal and financial objectives, time horizons and risk tolerance, should all be weighed before purchasing a product.
