Eric Skaar is a licensed independent Insurance Agent. He provides education, advice, plan design and product comparisons. He is originally from Santa Barbara, California and has lived in the Ventura and Santa Barbara area since graduating from California State University of Long Beach in 1992.

Eric began with Genworth Financial in 2005 as a Long Term Care Insurance specialist, followed by the authorization to provide the California Partnership for Long-Term Care. In 2006, he attained the CLTC professional designation. Eric joined Long Term Care Resources (LTCR), the nation’s leading long-term care specialist in 2015 and the west coast affiliate LTCR Pacific Agency in 2016.

Eric Skaar is committed to helping people protect their hard-earned assets and maintain their financial independence and dignity. He became committed to helping families through insurance due to his own family experience. His father passed away at age 53 after a 6 month fight with cancer. Fortunately, his parents had the foresight to have a life insurance policy that lessened the burden of the unexpected tragedy.

Long-Term Care insurance became a cornerstone of Eric’s profession after he experienced how emotionally trying and expensive long-term care is after his grandfather had a series of strokes. The care had a significant impact on the family’s life savings and put enormous strain on the family. Due to the likelihood that a long-term care need will affect most families, Eric believes that it is important for families to have a written plan in place prior to a long term care event taking place. For most people, due to the future expected costs of care, and the time required to provide and manage a person’s care, Long-Term Care insurance should be considered as an integral part of a family’s plan.

Throughout his career Eric has seen how insurance has helped families and individuals bear unexpected life events. None of these people ever expected to use their benefits but were very thankful to have it. It is the silver lining in an otherwise terrible situation.
