76% of people have a plan you can improve

76% of fixed annuity owners look to this asset as their primary defense against the threat of long-term care costs.* ForeCare is a fixed annuity built to fortify their defenses. Through a simple point of sale process, typically completed within a half-hour, you can offer:

  • Two or three times the contract value for qualified long-term care expenses, based on simple, non-medical underwriting.
  • All the traditional benefits of a fixed annuity, such as tax deferral, direct transfer of contract value to beneficiaries as death benefit proceeds and standard payout options.

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. Payments from IRAs are taxable in accordance with the normal rules surrounding taxation of payments from an IRA.
