Whether you are an insurance professional, financial advisor, attorney, CPA, or other professional providing guidance to clients and their families, it is critical to understand that their needs extend well beyond asset accumulation, income distribution, and estate planning. Today, working in these markets requires knowledge of long-term care and what decisions must be made well before care is needed in order to protect families from the emotional, physical and financial devastation that a need for extended care can cause.
The Certification in Long-Term Care (CLTC) designation was created in 1999. It focuses on the discipline of extended care planning. It provides professionals the critical tools necessary to discuss the subject of longevity and its consequences on their client’s family and finances. Students learn how to mitigate these consequences by developing a plan to protect their clients and their families.
