In Sickness and in Health: An Annuity Approach to Financing Long-Term Care and Retirement Income

Abstract

This article examines the implications of the positive correlation of mortality and disability for the benefits of combining an immediate income annuity with long-term care disability coverage at retirement ages. It also investigates the value of such a combined benefit to various subgroups of prospective purchasers and the implications of possible errors and moral hazard in the reporting of disability status and making claims.
