Paying for LTC insurance using a tax-free exchange
Abstract: Nothing can throw a monkey wrench into an estate plan like incurring long-term care (LTC) expenses. An LTC insurance policy can offset these costs, but the premiums can be expensive. One potential source for funding LTC insurance premiums is a total or partial tax-free exchange of an existing life insurance policy or annuity contract. This article examines how a tax-fee exchange can be a cost-efficient strategy for funding LTC premiums.
