You and your eligible family members (i.e., spouses, parents, parents-in-law, step parents, adult children, adult siblings (including stepbrothers and stepsisters), grandparents, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and in-laws between the ages of 18 and 79) may apply to the Long-Term Care (LTC).
The California Public Employees' Retirement System (CalPERS) operates the program for coverage that may be needed due to a chronic illness, frailty of old age, or a serious accident. Care may be provided at home, in an assisted living facility, or in a nursing home. The CalPERS LTC is now accepting applications for long-term care coverage and premiums are based on a person's age at time of application.
All current and former state employees (including retirees) and their eligible family members are eligible to apply. To learn more about CalPERS LTC coverage options and to download or request an application kit, visit the program website or speak to a program representative at 1-(800) 908-9119.
