When it comes to preparing for the unknown, many people look to life insurance and health insurance to cover costs associated with death, illness, or injury. However, those types of insurance won’t pay your bills if you get sick or injured. When your ability to earn an income is stalled or eliminated, disability insurance can offer financial protection.

Disability insurance pays a part of your income if you can’t work due to illness or injury. Anyone who relies on a paycheck should consider purchasing it, because you never know when a worst case scenario will happen to you. If you’d like to talk to an experienced financial professional about the types of disability insurance and which policy is right for you, contact us today. We’ll explain your options and help determine which benefit plan best meets your needs.


No matter how healthy you are today, there is a chance you’ll need some help taking care of yourself later in life. If you develop a chronic medical condition, disability, or disorder, like Alzheimer’s disease, long-term care insurance can help you pay for assistance with daily activities like bathing, dressing, getting in and out of bed, and taking medication. This type of care, which you can receive at home, in a nursing home, at an assisted living facility, or in an adult day care center, is typically not covered by regular health insurance.

If you wait until you need long-term care, you likely won’t qualify for the insurance, and Medicare can only help in limited ways. That’s why it’s so important to talk to a financial professional about long-term care as early as your mid-50s. Contact Winter & Associates today to speak to an experienced financial professional about your situation and preferences. We’ll assess whether long-term care makes sense for your financial strategy and help you shop for coverage.


We don’t need to tell you that finding the ideal health insurance policy for your situation at the lowest cost possible can be complicated. If you’re confused, overwhelmed, or frustrated while shopping for coverage, we’re here to help. Our financial professionals can get quotes, compare plans, and help you understand your options. Drawing on decades of experience, we’ll be able to answer most of your health insurance questions, and if not, we have access to people who can. Give us a call at 651-414-5000 or fill out the contact form here to book an appointment today.


Homeowners insurance, renters insurance, and car insurance are examples of insurance policies that typically offer property and casualty coverage. This is coverage that protects the things you own, such as your home or vehicle. Property and casualty insurance can also help protect you in the event that you’re found legally responsible for damage to another person’s belongings.

Purchasing the right type and amount of property and casualty insurance can protect you from unforeseen risks, but the various policy options can be difficult to comprehend. If you need advice about property and casualty insurance, contact our experienced financial professionals. We’ll work closely with you to determine which policy best meets your needs.
