Meet Steve Cain of NAIFA Partner LTCI Partners

By Ronan Friend on 5/2/22 10:00 AM

Steve Cain is a self-described “LTC insurance nerd” dedicated to being a lifelong learner and advocating for Main Street USA.

Getting Started

A 25-year veteran of the insurance industry, Cain started his insurance career after playing two years of minor league baseball. When he returned home to Los Angeles, he took a temporary job providing support for a company specializing in long-term care (LTC) insurance. He learned about LTC from his job, but he learned its value from watching his mother handle LTC events for both of her parents. He saw the impact dealing with LTC without proper planning had on her and knew he needed to help families like his own.

How to Protect Aging Clients from Financial Exploitation

By Cameron Huddleston, Carefull Family Finance Expert on 3/31/22 10:00 AM

Financial exploitation of older adults is rampant, and the problem will only get worse as America’s population continues to age.

In fact, the rate at which adults over the age of 60 can expect to experience financial exploitation—1 in 20—is higher than the incidence of many age-related diseases, according to research published in The Journals of Gerontology. And that’s likely an underestimate because many older adults are unwilling to report exploitation.

Using Technology to Deepen Client Relationships Across Generations

By Cameron Huddleston, Carefull Family Finance Expert on 1/10/22 8:00 AM

Technology might not seem like a likely tool a financial advisor can use to build client relationships. It almost goes without saying that older generations prefer human interaction versus digital services when it comes to their finances. And surveys have found that even tech-savvy millennials are more likely to get help with their finances from real-life advisors than from robo-advisors. 

So how can technology help financial advisors strengthen and add value to their relationships with clients—especially older clients—when it lacks the human touch? After all, a computer can’t hold your hand during a market downturn. 

But there is new technology that can enable advisors to build their businesses by giving them the ability to better assist aging clients and clients taking care of aging parents at the stage of their financial lives where they need the most help. That new technology is Carefull.

What You Should Know About Reverse Mortgage Interest Rates

By Fairway Independent Mortgage Corp. on 12/22/21 11:00 AM

It’s easy to lose focus on interest rates when you’re helping your client search for a reverse mortgage loan.

After all, the interest rate won’t affect the monthly payment because they won’t have to make one (though they will need to pay taxes and insurance and maintain the home).

Reverse loans don’t require monthly payments, as the full balance comes due when the last borrower dies or leaves the home.

But reverse mortgage interest rates are still a big deal and should factor into your clients' borrowing decisions. The interest rate will make a huge difference when the balance comes due and your client or their heirs must decide what to do with the home.
