Long Term Care Insurance
More than half of all women and one-third of all men over the age of 65 will spend some time in a nursing home.* With the average cost of a private room in a nursing facility in Southern California at more than $200 per day,** the cost of long term care without insurance could be staggering. Many experts say that the best way to protect your life’s savings is by purchasing Long Term Care Insurance.***
What is Long Term Care Insurance?
When most people think of long term care, they think “nursing home.” However, long term care can also be provided in these settings:
- In-home care
- Assisted living facilities
- Community programs, such as adult-day services
Long Term Care Insurance helps cover the costs of these programs, to help protect your retirement savings and ease the financial burden on your family in the event that long term care is needed.
At SchoolsFirst FCU, Long Term Care Insurance is made available through CUNA Mutual Insurance Society.
- Exclusive Member discounts that could save you up to 36% off regular premium rates

The Time to Plan for Your Future is Now
Insurance premiums are partly based on your age, so the sooner you purchase your policy, the less you’ll pay. Waiting until you are older could likely result in paying a higher rate for the same policy.
