Asset Protection

Case Study

Challenge: Clients underestimate the cost of prolonged care and risk depleting all of their assets.

Case Profile:

  • Client age 50-80
  • Retirement income strategy is set
  • Have a “rainy day fund"
  • Want money to pass on to loved ones if not needed
  • Unwilling to risk principal

Would an umbrella get your clients through a flood?

If your clients are counting on a “rainy day fund” to handle the prolonged storm of expenses that many of them will face should an extended health crisis strike, it may be like using an umbrella to get them through a flood.

  • 70% of people over 65 will require long-term care at some point.*
  • $3,923 is the average monthly cost for a one-bedroom apartment at an assisted living facility.*


With the ability to double or triple their "rainy day fund" for qualified long-term care expenses, a ForeCare fixed annuity from Forethought Life Insurance Company may help keep them afloat during challenging times.

Plus, if they never need the benefit, the full contract value is passed directly to beneficiaries as death benefit.

The ForeCare Multiplier provides two or three times (subject to underwriting eligibility) the amount of the contract value in long-term care (LTC) coverage to spend on actual incurred qualified LTC expenses (monthly reimbursement limits apply). These benefits are only available to use for a qualified LTC expense and will not become part of the contract value or death benefit. Withdrawals, other than for qualified LTC expenses, will adversely affect the amount of future coverage.

Guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of Forethought Life Insurance Company.

Products and optional features are subject to state and firm availability. State variations may apply.

A life and health license is required to sell ForeCare. Some states may also require long-term care certification. Underwriting, typically completed at the point-of-sale, is also necessary. To invoke ForeCare’s long-term care benefits, the Insured must be unable to perform at least two of the six Activities of Daily Living as determined by a licensed health care professional.

Taxable distributions (including certain deemed distributions) are subject to ordinary income taxes, and if made prior to age 59½, may also be subject to a 10% federal income tax penalty. Distributions received from a non-qualified contract before the Annuity Commencement Date are taxable to the extent of the income on the contract.
