Important LTC Age Limitations

Back in April, Mutual of Omaha implemented the following temporary underwriting changes:

  • They will not be accepting LTC applications for individuals age 65 and older.
  • All LTC cases not already approved or issued will be postponed and processed as an incomplete application.
  • They will continue to prequalify applicants 64 and younger. The prequalification will be good for 60 days. If the health of the client changes or the prequalification is past 60 days, you will need to prequalify the applicant again.
