Long-Term Care Insurance Is Asset Protection.
Find Out Why Long-Term Care Is Vital!

Hello Retirees!

Congratulations on your years of service with the City and the completion of a beautiful career. However, this is not the end, it is the beginning of something new … which means you must plan for this new season of life!

First step: If you have not contacted the Club yet to complete a form to have your Club Membership and/or insurance deducted from your pension, please do so ASAP! Even if you are not newly Retired, please call (800) 464-0452 or email and let us know that you are a Retiree and need to complete a pension form. Never worry about a bill or late payment: Pension deduction is the most convenient and easiest to handle of the deductions offered to Club Members.

Second step: Protect your hard-earned savings and assets and protect your family.

  • Long-Term Care and Life Insurance are must-have insurances as a Retiree.
  • Long-Term Care is asset protection, and Retiree Life Insurance provides financial help in the form of a death benefit or supplement for loss of income.

Do not be a burden to yourself or your family. Find out how below!

Long Term Care Insurance protects your assets and income from the costs of care.


According to a medically reviewed article from 2022, approximately 70 percent of seniors will need some type of long-term care.

Long-Term Care Insurance is Asset Protection

What is long-term care (LTC) insurance?
Long-term care insurance is designed to pay benefits for some of the expenses you may incur if you need supervision or assistance with basic activities of daily living (ADLs), including bathing, eating, continence, dressing, toileting, ambulating and transferring.

You may need this kind of help following an accident or illness such as a stroke — because of older age and frailty, or because you need supervision due to a cognitive disorder like Alzheimer’s disease.

Here’s why you need Long Term Care Insurance from
the Club:
