In This Chapter

• LTC waits for no one
Throughout this book, we look at a variety of ways to pay for long-term care. It’s never too early to look into long-term care planning for yourself or for a loved one. The younger you are, the more planning choices you are likely to have. For example, if long-term care insurance is part of your plan, approximately 7 percent of people under age 60 who apply are declined; of those who wait until age 70 to apply, approximately 25 percent have their application declined. But even people over age 80 and in bad health have planning options. Whatever age you are now is the right age to start.
