Limited Payment Options

Quick Description

A limited payment option is a payment plan that sets a specific period of time the policyholder will pay a premium.

Full Description

A limited payment option fixes Long-Term Care Insurance premiums to a set timeline. The payment options are generally 10, 15, or 20 years or to age 65. Choosing a limited payment period will increase the premium price. 


In a normal policy, policyholders pay a premium each year for the rest of their life. However, most normal policies offer a "waiver of premium" when the policyholder is actively receiving care benefits.
