Don has earned the CLTC designation (“Certified in Long Term Care”). He has also received the necessary training to offer “Long-Term Care Partnership Policies” under the state partnership programs initiated by Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Virginia.

The Long-Term Care Partnership Programs provide dollar-for-dollar asset protection. “For every dollar that a long-term care partnership insurance policy pays out in benefits, a dollar of personal assets can be protected if the individual chooses to apply for Medicaid.” (Indiana also offers a “total asset protection” partnership policy.)

Don is committed to educating his clients in protecting assets and avoiding the potentially devastating consequences of an unexpected long-term care event.

As an independent insurance agent, Don provides each client with a thorough analysis and detailed comparison of the benefits and costs of several of the top LTC insurance policies.

Don was raised in Michigan and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Michigan State University in 1980. Don worked his way through college while working for Diamond Crystal Salt Company. After graduating college, he stayed in the salt industry for nearly 20 years working his way up to the level of Manager of Sales for Highway and Chemical Division.

Several years ago, when Don was faced with a mid-life career change, he decided to specialize in long-term care insurance.

He’d seen firsthand the physical and financial hardship that was created when two of his grandparents needed long-term care. Since neither of them had long-term care insurance, the burden fell to Don’s mother and her siblings.

Don is passionate about offering a solution to a problem that had such a significant impact on his family.

I had read and listened to many financial experts on the benefits of LTC Insurance and felt it was something that I should consider not only for my own sake but for the sake of my children. I wanted to continue to have a loving relationship with them but I did not want to become a burden and I felt that this insurance will help me achieve this, especially the ability to have care in my home from an outside source. The two issues I faced in making this decision were 1) How much coverage do I really need to purchase, and even more importantly, 2) Who can I really trust to give me that information. That was my biggest concern and that is where the blessing comes in – I, thru the American Associaton of Long Term Care Insurance was put in touch with Don Strickler. The moment I spoke with him and he was able to answer all of my questions and was able to provide me with a tremendous amount of information addressing all of my concerns, I knew I had found someone who was knowledgeable and, I felt, I could trust. He recommended very highly rated insurance companies and made the comparison process of choosing between benefits, costs and companies a very simple to understand process. He never once applied pressure to purchase and was always very patient and professional. I would highly recommend Don to anyone who is looking to purchase LTC Insurance, especially if you are like me and hesitant about dealing with “a salesperson” – he is not that – he is a LTC Insurance professional who is willing to share his knowledge and experience with you.
