Lower monthly fees and smaller rate increases than a typical rental community.

Guaranteed refund based on the financial option you choose.
For instance, you can choose to pay a larger entry fee that entitles your estate to a 90% refund, a smaller membership fee where your estate is entitled to a 50% refund or the smallest fee possible where a declining refund would be issued to your estate according to the length of stay.

Preservation of your estate.
The refundable portion of the membership fee provides a guaranteed way to preserve your estate.

A community of like-minded people who have planned for their future.
Residents who proactively plan for their retirement years tend to enjoy greater financial and physical freedom. Since membership fee communities typically attract this mindset, residents tend to be more actively engaged and able to take full advantage of all that the community has to offer.

Potential tax benefits of entry fees and monthly fees.
The IRS may recognize a percentage of both the membership fee and monthly fee as a medical expense deduction. Please consult your personal tax adviser for the tax implications.
