What is hybrid life and long-term care insurance?

Our hybrid life and long-term care insurance is a whole life insurance policy with a long-term care benefit rider. It's designed to make sure you get value from your policy whether you need care or not. It gives you guaranteed coverage for qualified long-term care expenses, or will pay the death benefit in case you don't need long-term care (or just a limited amount). Best of all, it comes with the potential for the value of these benefits to grow over time through the power of dividends.1 And once your premiums are set, they'll never go up.
