Most adult children aren’t “worried” about receiving an inheritance! They worry about how to take care of Mom or Dad and how to pay for it. Turning that life insurance policy into cash their parent(s) need now is a win-win situation for the family and parent alike.
Turning the life insurance policy into cash MAY keep you or a loved one from stepping up to a higher (more expensive!) level of care. If you don’t want to move from home to assisted living, or assisted living to a nursing home, use the money from the life insurance to pay for additional care at home or in your assisted living community.
