  1. September/October 2010 Lincoln Financial Lincoln Financial Life Stages Survey: Long-Term Care LCN1102-205062

  2. Objectives and Methodology

  3. Investigate how consumers go about planning for their long term care and understand the need for long term care insurance as a separate asset class Determine the level of understanding that consumers have about long term care insurance Investigate the impact that long term care can have on the lifestyle of consumers and their families Understand how previous experiences (either direct or indirect) with long term care impacts current views and planning Key Objectives

  4. Survey conducted September/October 2010 • 1002 total respondents • 702 completed the survey online • 300 completed the survey via phone • Both surveys lasted approximately 15 – 20 minutes • All respondents are age 40 – 70 and have investable assets of $100,000 or annual household income of $100,000 (or both) • Study results contain a margin of error of +/- 3.10 percentage points at the 95% confidence level Methodology

  5. Quotas Were Set So That Respondents Were Evenly Divided Between Direct Experience, Indirect Experience, and No Experience Direct Experience Indirect Experience No Experience n = 1002 A-6. Have you ever overseen the long term care of an adult loved one?

  6. NOTE: Unless otherwise noted, when totals are displayed, data is weighted based on experience so that the survey sample matches the general population.

  7. Less than half have made plans to ensure they have sufficient funds to cover long term care expenses, yet many say that it is important to plan for long term care needs. Most recognize that their lifestyle would change if they need long term care, but unless they have experienced a lifestyle change themselves while overseeing a loved one’s care (or watched others experience a lifestyle change), they are less likely to recognize the impact long term care could have on their family. Respondents are most likely to turn to their savings to pay for long term care expenses and are less likely to turn to money from friends and family. They would be willing to give up a lot to pay for their long term care, but most would not be willing to go into debt. Those who have already purchased long term care insurance are much more confident that they are prepared and are less likely to get drained financially, have to depend on family for help, or to feel guilty. Key Findings

  8. Detailed Findings

Many Respondents Aren’t Sure If They Will Need Long Term Care at Some Point in Their Life Primary reasons given: in good health, family history There were no significant differences based on age.
