Using a Single Investment to Meet Multiple Financial Goals
Wall Street Journal (04/02/02) p.C1; Clements, Jonathan

A cash-value policy with long-term care benefits is an alternative to a standard long-term care policy. Financial planner Richard Van Der Noord notes that the long-term care provision in a cash-value policy gives the policyholder access to 2 percent to 4 percent of the death benefit every month to pay for long-term care.
