Discounted Long Term Care Insurance Seminar

Learn how Long Term Care insurance works and how affordable it can be

Did you know that the average monthly cost for a semi-private nursing home room in San Diego is $5,640 and that a private room can reach up to $8,000? Those who assume that they will never need care or that the government will subsidize the cost of a nursing home may find themselves unprepared for the financial ramifications. Many people are turning to long-term care insurance (LTC) to help pay for these costs and to protect their family assets. LTC offers a prudent approach to meeting these financial challenges, however, LTC is one of the most difficult insurances to obtain and it can be expensive.

MEA offers a robust LTC program through UNUM to all City of San Diego employees with extremely competitive rates via payroll deduction. One of MEA’s Benefits Specialists will be hosting multiple LTC insurance seminars to provide City employees with information about the coverage and MEA’s discounted plans.

 Items that will be covered during this seminar include:

  1. What is Long Term Care insurance?
  2. Who needs Long Term Care insurance?
  3. How much does the insurance cost?
  4. Who is eligible?
  5. How does it work when I retire?
  6. How do I enroll?

Please RSVP by calling the MEA Benefits Department at (888) 217-9175, or by email at benefits@sdmea.org. Lunch will be provided to the first 30 employees who RSVP for each date.
