The Top Four Consumer Concerns

All over the Internet, there is no other economic subject that polarizes advisers across the country more than "buy term and invest the difference from a permanent policy". Next to that is the ultimate retirement question of what assets should be used in retirement and in what sequence should they be used. Running a close third is whether you should convert traditional IRAs to Roth IRAs before retirement to maximize income during your golden years. And lastly, whether or not to self-insure against extended care costs or purchase a long term care insurance policy.

Now there may be an alternative to traditional long term care insurance that has cash values, so you can mitigate the cost, even if you don't use it.
