Q:

Will the cost of my entrance fee ever increase?

A:

No. Your entrance fee is a one-time payment that’s 90% refundable should you ever decide to move. Once you’ve locked in your fee, you will never be asked to put more money down. However, because retirement costs can increase, the sooner you lock in your one-time entrance fee, the better.
