Westlake Village, Calif. — The American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance recognized the nation's top-100 long-term care insurance producers this week at the 2008 National LTCi Producers Summit held at the Omni Hotel in Atlanta. Nearly 600 leading producers and marketers were in attendance at the Association's seventh national conference for members, the group reports.

In addition to the annual recognition for sales of traditional long-term care insurance, the association honored the nation's top sellers of multi-life (worksite) long-term care insurance as well as combo products (life and annuity policies) that offer long-term care benefits.

"There are some 40,000 insurance and financial professionals nationwide who sell at least one long-term care insurance policy in any given year,” explains Jesse Slome, executive director of the national trade organization. “To be recognized as one of the nation's top-100 in front of your peers is an important way to salute these individuals' professionalism, accomplishment and dedicated commitment to serving consumers in their community.”

Award recipients were honored at a special breakfast held at the association's national conference. "For the first time, the association expanded the awards program to salute the nation's top agents and brokers who sold combo life and annuity contracts that now provide LTC benefits," Slome explained. "These new coverages are an important and growing part of the overall long-term care insurance industry."
