Note: The Long-Term Care Program is not currently accepting new applications. Please continue to check this website for information on future application periods.
The CalPERS Long-Term Care Program offers comprehensive benefits to help you plan for the high cost of needing long-term care services. The program is designed specifically for California public employees, retirees, and their extended family members between the ages of 18 and 79.
All California public employees, retirees, their spouses, parents, parents-in-law, and adult siblings are eligible for the CalPERS Long-Term Care Program. Members of the program can receive benefits for covered services anywhere in the nation.
A catastrophic accident or disability can occur at any age and commercial health plans and Medicare do not provide extended care.
Each plan option offers a variety of daily benefit and total coverage amounts and flexibility on how the benefits are used.
