Contact will be made by an insurance agent or insurance company. You recognize the value of purchasing life insurance to protect your family or your business after your death. But it s also important to protect your independence and your assets while you re alive. There may come a time when you need help doing the things that you have always done for yourself. Fortunately, there is a simple way to address both needs with a single policy by adding the Long-Term Care (LTC) rider to a John Hancock permanent life insurance policy. Protect your retirement. And your family s well-being. Preserve your assets and quality of life. It s wise to plan for long-term care when you re still active and healthy, because the fact is that this care is often very expensive and is not covered under private medical insurance. By adding the Long-Term Care rider 1 to a permanent John Hancock life insurance policy, you ll have income tax-favored coverage if you need it later to help pay for assistance with basic activities of daily living such as: bathing, dressing, eating, continence, and transferring or if you ever need substantial supervision because of cognitive impairment. 1. The Long-Term Care (LTC) rider is an accelerated death benefit rider and may not be available in some states. Maximum face amount $5 million with the LTC rider. The LTC rider is not considered long-term care insurance in some states. When the death benefit is accelerated for long-term care expenses, the death benefit is reduced dollar for dollar, and the cash value is reduced proportionally. The policy account value is also reduced proportionally. There are additional costs associated with this rider. For prospective policyholders in New York, this product is a life insurance policy that accelerates the death benefit for qualified long-term care services and is not a health insurance policy providing long-term care insurance subject to the minimum requirements of New York Law; it does not qualify for the New York State Long-Term Care Partnership program; and is not a Medicare supplement policy. This rider has exclusions and limitations, reductions of benefits, and terms under which the rider may be continued in force or discontinued. Please contact the licensed agent or John Hancock for more information, cost, and complete details on coverage. Combined Protection When you choose the Long-Term Care rider, your policy s death benefit becomes available in the event that you need it to help pay long-term care costs. You can use all, some or none of your insurance benefit to pay for those expenses. 2 Any unused portion of the death benefit remains with your policy and is paid to your beneficiaries at death. 2 The combination of a permanent John Hancock life insurance policy with the Long-Term Care rider is a cost-efficient and convenient way to help you plan for your future.
