Maurice Blond Agency Partners with Park Avenue Securities

As president of The Maurice Blond Agency, Inc., in New York City, Laurel Blond has been providing clients with health, life, long term care, and disability insurance for years. However, as insurance comprises only one part of a person’s financial portfolio, she has reached out to another organization in an effort to direct her clients to top-flight investment services.

Laurel Blond has chosen to work with Park Avenue Securities (PAS) in order to provide these services to her clients. Based out of an office on Hanover Square in New York City, the company has been helping clients as The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America’s retail broker/dealer operation for more than a decade. PAS offers advice to clients on many stages of their financial lives, including planning for home buying and having children, working through mid-life events like career changes or divorce, and preparing for retirement.

From the Desk of Laurel Blond: Long-Term Care Insurance

If you have health insurance, your insurance pays your medical bills in the event of illness or injury. Health insurance, however, usually does not cover the costs of long-term care, which may present a significant financial risk.

Long-term care insurance offers protection if you require sustained support due to a disability or chronic illness. The insurance covers care both in a nursing home and in your own home or an assisted-living facility. A long-term care policy might also cover the cost of services such as visiting nurses, meal preparation, help with household chores, or adult daycare.

Long-term care is expensive, though the amount depends on the length of time and the level of care required. Most long-term care expenses are borne by the patient and the family. Medicare pays a limited amount and often covers only short-term care. Medicaid is available for people who meet federal poverty guidelines and for nursing home residents who have exhausted their savings.

Several types of long-term care insurance exist. Premiums vary depending on the level of benefits you choose as well as your age and other factors. A licensed agent who specializes in long-term care insurance is the best source for extensive information.

Maurice Blond Agency, Inc., offers a comprehensive range of insurance, including disability, health, and life. Laurel Blond serves as President of the agency, which is located on New York’s Fifth Avenue. Possessing expertise in long-term care insurance, Ms. Blond shares her knowledge at numerous seminars. Laurel Blond is married to Rabbi Leib Tropper. The couple has three children and one grandchild.
