Dear Senator/Congressperson: 

I would like to submit my opinion regarding the tax deduction for privately purchased long-term care policies. I support equal tax advantages for both qualified and non-tax-qualified plans. 

Both types of plans help secure the financial and emotional well being of the growing senior population. Financial and emotional security enable seniors to plan a quality retirement, without depending on the increasingly small amounts of government funding available for retirees. 

Unfortunately, only tax-qualified plans have deductible premiums. Furthermore, non-tax-qualified plans have easier access for seniors. Please offer both types of policyholders the tax advantages they deserve without forcing non-tax-qualified plan buyers to bear the financial consequences. 

Thank you for your time and attention.
