VRS Long Term Care Insurance Program – Special Enrollment

Dear Colleagues,

Now through October 11, eligible employees who work at least 20 hours a week are invited to enroll in the Commonwealth of Virginia Voluntary Group Long Term Care Insurance Program, administered by the Virginia Retirement System. VRS has contracted with Genworth Life Insurance Co. as the insurer for the program. Eligible employees age 65 and under who apply by October 11 will have fewer medical underwriting requirements.

Under this program, coverage to help pay for long-term care may be more affordable than you think. It also offers a variety of coverage levels available to meet your individual needs and budgets.  Advances in medicine are helping us live longer; but living longer has its own challenges. About 70% of people over age 65 will require long-term care at some point to help manage their lives.  Most medical plans don’t cover long-term care services such as nursing home care or at-home care to assist with bathing, eating or other activities of daily living. Anyone at any age may need these services, the cost of which can quickly deplete savings or retirement income.
