As Your Clients Are Living Longer,
More Are Suffering Chronic Illnesses or Disabilities - -
And Their Estate Plans May Be Inadequate!

The statistics are mind-blowing:

  • Over 130 million Americans are living with chronic illness or disability
  • 26% of those ages 65-74 suffer chronic illnesses
  • 50% of those over age 85 have some cognitive impairment, potentially exposing them to elder abuse!

Many of these people are, or will become, your clients.  Unfortunately, the estate planning we’ve been taught to do in school or CE courses often fails to adequately address the special issues pertaining to chronic illness and disability.

The good news is, if you upgrade your planning to cover these very probable client situations, you’ll be a step ahead of the competition!
