TransAmerica Long Term Care Insurance Review

#11 in Long Term Care Insurance

TransAmerica offers a variety of financial services and is considered as one of the top insurance services in the country today. The company aims to make long term insurance more available by providing a myriad of solutions that includes tax qualified and inflation protected plans to make it more affordable and effective.

 

Premium

Premiums are determined through a number of factors (age upon enrolment, type of policy and coverage) but after considering all of these, TransAmerica premiums are about 20 percent more than comparable plans.

Inflation protection is available but it is almost triple that of plans without inflation protection. Over the long run however daily benefits for inflation protected plans pays double. Daily benefits for non-inflation protected plans for example pay $100 but those with protection doubles this up to $200. An inflation protected plan at the end of the year could be $1000 more and at 15 years this totals to $15,000 but if the plan pays $200,000 in maximum benefits compared to $100,000 for non-protected plans then it gives $100,000 minus the $15,000 added payment of course which roughly translates to $80,000 more in benefits.
