Defray LTC costs without destroying retirement savings

ForeCare fixed annuity, on the edge of a new generation of fixed annuities for the twenty-first century, combines all of the traditional fixed annuity features with additional benefits available for long-term care costs, helping to prevent asset erosion – of your client’s wealth and your assets under management (AUM) – due to long-term care needs.

Selling Features

  • Two or three times the contract value (determined through underwriting) for qualified long-term care expenses.
  • Protection of principal and accrued interest with ForeCare charges for long-term care protection guaranteed to not exceed the current period crediting rating.
  • Guaranteed minimum interest crediting.
  • A death benefit that passes remaining contract value to beneficiaries, so it’s not lost if it’s not needed for long-term care expenses or income.

 Additional elective features may incur charges that could be deducted from principal.

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.

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.
