The findings of a major study determined that the average time on a long term care insurance claim is 3 ½ years.

Of the 400,000 claims analyzed, 95% of all claims were for under $200,000 of dollars paid. This means there was only a 5% chance a claim would be over $200,000. Most of these people were in their 80s when on claim.

Taking into consideration inflation and medical technology, to cover 95%, a 60 year old should have a pool of dollars valuing $350,000 should a claim begin at age 80. That increases to $374,000 if the claim were to begin at age 85.

A 65 year old should have $325,000 in their available pool by age 80 and $350,000 by age 85.

These are per person and it is suggested that at minimum a five year benefit period should be taken into consideration.

There are also options where life insurance can be used to help pay for long term care expenses.
