What You Need to Know

  • Organizers have attracted about 700 LTC industry players to Raleigh, North Carolina
  • Some sessions deal with topics such as rate increases and actuarial assumptions.
  • One session will look at how LTC advisors can help clients with issues such as caring for children and aging parents at the same time.

Finally, more than 700 movers and shakers in the long-term care insurance and planning industry are meeting face to face this week for the Intercompany Long-Term Care Insurance Conference.

ILTCI started up in 2015.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced ILTCI to cancel its 2020 conference, and then a new wave of cases forced it to move its 2021 conference online.

This year, ILTCI is back, with three days of programming, in Raleigh, North Carolina.

This is the long-term care insurance and planning industry conference — the one that LTC gurus don’t want to miss. The conference provides an invaluable forum for learning, with a menu of 42 breakout sessions, and a mini-reunion.

The schedule includes sessions on long-term care insurance rate increases and the fine art of creating long-term care projections and assumptions.

And the schedule also includes two sessions on opportunities in the employer-sponsored long-term care insurance market.

On Monday, Steve Cain, a sales and business development leader at LTCI Partners, moderated a session on “the great resurgence in group long-term care,” featuring three group LTCI sales and distribution veterans — Denise Gott, Adam Ruder and Kevin Sypniewski.

Another session, on Tuesday, will give attendees a chance to work with other attendees to come up with solutions for Tom and Betty — a hypothetical couple in their late 50s with two kids in college, one kid in high school, and Tom’s mother, Helen.

Helen is is in her early 80s and starting to show signs of cognitive decline.

Tom has two siblings who might help, or might not help.

And that’s why this conference matters: We see this situations in our clients’ lives every days, and also coming up in our own lives.
