The National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors is introducing a new long-term care (LTC) planning program today, in Chicago, at the Intercompany Long Term Care Insurance Conference.
The new NAIFA Limited & Extended Care Planning Center will offer professional designation programs and other resources for insurance agents and financial advisors, NAIFA said in a center launch announcement.
NAIFA leaders first talked about the LECP Center a year ago, at the 2018 ILTCI Conference.

The center’s content will address topics such as stand-alone long-term care insurance, life-LTC and annuity-LTC hybrids, short-term care insurance, critical illness insurance, reverse mortgages, long-term care benefits claims management, senior housing options, and long-term care technology.
The NAIFA government relations team already works long-term care finance issues, and it will continue to do so, NAIFA says.
Carroll Golden will serve as the LECP Center’s first executive director. Golden has worked as an LTCI executive at LifeSecure Insurance Company and at Transamerica.
