Do You Have an Eldercare Plan?


Tuesday - September 11, 2012 at 07:52 am


Today approximately 13% of the U.S. population is over age 65. By 2030, projections show that approximately 20% of the U.S. population will be over age 65. Why are these numbers important? Because three out of four Americans will need some type of long-term care assistance during their lifetimes.

Mike Switzer interviews Michael Baughman, a certified financial planner with Abacus Planning Group in Columbia.
