  5. Reasons You Need a Long-Term Care Plan (U.S. News)
      "Every year, the Employee Benefit Research Institute sponsors a detailed look at the retirement confidence of U.S. workers and retirees. Among current workers, nearly 30 percent have less than $1,000 in savings, and another 25 percent have less than $25,000. Among both current workers and retirees, the level of confidence that they will be able to pay for their long-term care expenses is very low, and few have any plans for how to afford such care. Private long-term care insurance is owned by about 1 in 8 seniors aged 65 and older, but fewer than 9 percent of people between the ages of 55 and 64 own it. Among Americans earning more than $100,000 a year, fewer than 20 percent have long-term care policies. Even with such insurance, there can be substantial out-of-pocket care expenses." 04-11
