One of the most significant benefits of current retirements is also one of its biggest risks.

And we’re talking about longevity. It’s great that modern medicine has continued to increase our life expectancies. The problem continues to be with how to afford our now longer golden years. And that is just in maintaining the status quo. Many analysts and policymakers aren’t including another overlooked area that investors need to consider: long-term care (LTC).
