Today we're back with the one and only Alecia Barnette, CLTC. Alecia is the Senior Vice President of our care planning division at FIG. She is going to shed light on some remarkable developments taking place within the care planning industry and in long-term care insurance in this episode. We'll explore the importance of thoughtful care planning and financing strategies in today’s evolving landscape, particularly as the aging retiree population and baby boomers face the reality of future care needs.

Join us to learn about state mandates for long-term care insurance and the potential for healthcare for all acts or socialized healthcare in different states. We’ll share why discussing these long-term care options with clients before these possibilities are implemented is critical. We also explore product innovations like joint life and group products that allow younger clients to opt out of state mandates.

To wrap up this episode, Alecia will chat about the educational client events and webinars she hosts for financial advisors and insurance agencies focused on long-term care. She walks through how they work and the benefits of these events.
