Business Brief: Ameriprise advisor certified in long-term care services


Jennifer W. Marlin of Ameriprise Financial has received a professional certification in long-term care. The aim of the program, according to a press release, is to give financial services professionals the tools needed to meet a client’s long-term care needs.

“The field of long-term care is complex,” Ms. Marlin explained. “It intersects with other professions such as financial planning, tax law, homecare, government funding and elder law. My ability to serve the community depends on understanding what resources, such as housing and services, clients will need as they age and how they will be paid for. It is my responsibility to help people understand the emotional, physical and financial consequences associated with providing or paying for care over an extended period of time. It is essential they have this information so they can take action to protect those they love while they have options. I am committed to helping my clients create an appropriate plan to meet their specific needs.”

Ms. Marlin can be reached at: 508-627-7777 or at Ameriprise Financial, 12 Mariners Way, Edgartown.
