Get Financial Education at Your Local Branch

April 26, 2019 | Linda Barner

Happy family who have attended Mission Fed' First-Time Homebuyer Seminars and Long-Term Care Workshops.

When it comes to lifelong learning, it’s a smart idea to have financial education at the top of the list. Financial education comes in many forms. Sometimes it’s from an online article, your tax professional, a friend or family member, and even from your bank! We offer in-person events to help you make smart decisions to reach your short- and long-term goals. Do you want to understand the ins and outs about buying or selling a home, or planning for Long-Term Care? Learn more at these educational workshops throughout San Diego County.

How to plan for Long-Term Care

How will you care for yourself when you are older, or if you experience an accident or illness? Many people don’t realize that medical insurance typically only covers skilled care, not assistance with daily life activities, such as bathing and eating. Happily, there is an affordable way to help preserve your assets, your care and your peace of mind. With Long-Term Care insurance and protection, you’ll have coverage for your care—and receive assistance in the comfort of your own home, or in a skilled nursing facility if you prefer. Find out everything you need to know by attending a Long-Term Care Workshop. Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Identify the best Long-Term Care plan for your needs
  • Learn about new legislation created to provide tax incentives
  • Save money with discounted plan options
  • Evaluate whether it’s better to insure or “self-insure” against the risk of Long-Term Care
