People are living longer, but what does that mean for your retirement plan?

Whether you are close to retiring or 30 years away, it’s hard to envision living into your 90’s.

Join Mike Macco and Andrew Froelich as they discuss how Social Security, long term care, and Medicare can all play a role in planning for a long life.


Long Term Care Insurance or Asset based Long Term Care Insurance Products may not be suitable for all investors. Surrender charges may apply for early withdrawals and, if made prior to age 59 ½, may be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty in addition to any gains being taxed as ordinary income. Please consult with a licensed financial professional when considering your insurance options. These policies have exclusions and/or limitations. The cost and availability of LTC insurance depend on factors such as age, health, and the type and amount of insurance purchased. As with most financial decisions, there are expenses associated with the purchase of LTC insurance. Guarantees are based on the claims paying ability of the insurance company. Changes in tax laws or regulations may occur at any time and could substantially impact your situation. Raymond James Financial Services advisors do not render advice on tax or legal matters. You should discuss any tax or legal matters with the appropriate professional.
