Survey shows many not ready to pay for care as they age: “Own Your Future” initiative encourages Minnesotans to plan ahead

[caption id="attachment_22437" align="alignleft"]stockvault-quartz-clock111914stockvault.net[/caption]Research shows that 70 percent of people 65 and older will need long-term care at some point in their lives. Despite these projections, the 2014 Department of Human Services’ State Fair Survey shows more than 30 percent Minnesotans do not know how they would pay for that care. An additional 13 percent of respondents said they would rely on government programs to pay for long-term care.
