Long-term care insurance coverage offers financial support to people who need assistance with certain activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, toileting, and preparing meals. This is by no means a small group of people. According to U.S. government data, as many as 70 percent of senior citizens are projected to require ongoing long-term care at one point or another. This type of care is also highly expensive. Illinois families need access to their benefits.
Sadly, those benefits can sometimes end up being very difficult to obtain.
