A startling statistic reveals that many couples in retirement today may have to dedicate 40% of their Social Security income to health care costs by age 70 ― up to 76% by age 87.*

Health care during one’s retirement years brings significant challenges when planning for sustainable income he or she cannot outlive. However, if you understand the challenges as well as how the health care system works, you can educate clients with strategies that may assist them with increasing health care costs and longevity. In turn, this can provide significant opportunities for you when advising your clients during the retirement-income planning process.

The Lafayette Life Insurance Company’s Advanced Markets Assistant Vice President Michael Buckner will discuss these challenges and opportunities when working with clients dealing with health care in retirement.

*Based on a 66-year-old couple receiving Social Security benefits on a Primary Insurance Amount (PIA) of $2,268 per month ($27,216 per year), the national average in 2017.
