How will you spend the years ahead? That may depend on the long-term care insurance you choose today. Like most people, you probably recognize the need for long-term care insurance. It's not simply "nursing home" coverage, but insurance that helps assure you of continued independence as you age - without depleting the personal assets you've worked hard to acquire. But choosing the right protection from the many plans available can be a daunting task. Long Term Care Resources has partnered with the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists to offer a comprehensive Long Term Care Program. AACE members are entitled to a special discount on certain LTC plans available through this program. Call Long Term Care Resources today to receive a FREE AACE Long Term Care Planning Kit.

To speak with an authorized LTC Specialist in your area, please contact LTCR Toll Free at (800) 616-8759 or visit us on the web.



This unique plan, under Section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code, provides a tax- deductible income/savings program for physicians as a method for saving for retirement, college, disability or estate planning.
The program allows physicians to use the American College of Endocrinology (ACE) 501C3 exempt status to gain a tax deductible and enhanced return annuity with income for life.
The program may be utilized to diversify or supplement retirement plans without the expenses or market risks of traditional plans.
The plan will guarantee you or your chosen second income beneficiary to receive an income for life funded through an annuity starting on the date chosen by you.
At the time of your death, ACE will also receive an endowment in your name that will help provide future income to AACE for funding education and research programs for endocrinologists.
A paramedical or physical exam may be required depending on age and contribution amount. However, participation is not contingent on passing a physical exam.
For assistance with the Section 170 Plan, please contact Mr. Richard Howard at 1-800-692-6893. Planned Giving
