I can purchase long term care insurance through my employer. The concern I have is the policy is with CNA and Suze Orman’s website had some negative comments on that firm. What are your current thoughts on CNA?

CNA has an entirely new claims management team plus they are moving the entire claims division inhouse so I’m sure it will be fine and claims will be handled well. My concern with the group product is for you to buy the inflation benefit that is automatic, not the kind that asks you every few years if you want to buy more coverage. The additional coverage under that arrangement is priced at your attained age and gets really expensive. If you would like me to review the options with you, feel free to email them to me at phyllis@gotltci.com or fax to me at 615-590-0307. No charge. I just want you to be adequately insured. And congratulations for taking steps to plan for long-term care. It is so very, very important.
