Todd Stein’s passion for long-term care planning comes from his own family experience, which made clear the value of this often missing or misunderstood part of any basic retirement strategy. He saw the importance of having a plan in place when his grandfather needed care for 20 years after a stroke at age 73. Then his grandmother, after the loss of her husband, ended up in a nursing home with dementia for 13 years. Neither of them had a plan to protect their assets, ensure their quality of care or relieve pressure on family members who were responsible for their care. As one of the nation’s top insurance agents specializing in long-term care planning solutions, he is a relationship builder who is uniquely qualified to serve the needs of his clients, whether looking at traditional long-term care insurance or asset-based long-term care solutions. Todd is a licensed agent affiliated with ACSIA Partners LLC, a national agency representing the major carriers with an ongoing commitment to the industry.
