Long-term care insurance

Long-term care insurance provides a wide range of supportive medical, personal and social services for individuals who need assistance for an extended period of time. The plan’s coverage can help protect against the risk of losing savings and assets to meet these needs.

Genworth Life Insurance Company is the plan provider for this benefit and is administering the program on behalf of the Virginia Retirement System (VRS). Following processing and approval of the completed application, participants receive a certificate indicating the effective date of coverage.

Participants in the program are responsible for all premium payments, which are direct-billed to the participating employee. Contact Genworth for more information.

Genworth recently announced a premium rate increase for participants who enrolled between 2010 and 2016 (Group Policy Form Series 7046). Read more on the Benefits Announcements page.
