Exhibit F - Long-Term Care Insurance Personal Worksheet

Current through Register Vol. 46, No. 15, April 8, 2022

People buy long-term care insurance for many reasons. Some don't want to use their own assets to pay for long-term care. Some buy insurance to make sure they can choose the type of care they get. Others don't want their family to have to pay for care or don't want to go on Medicaid. But long-term care insurance may be expensive, and may not be right for everyone.

The company will ask you to fill out this worksheet to help you and the company decide if you should buy this policy. By State law, the insurance company must fill out part of the information on this worksheet.
