Long-Term Care (Retirees)
Long-term care insurance helps pay for a broad range of nursing and custodial services if you become unable to care for yourself due to a chronic illness or physical or cognitive impairment such as Alzheimer's disease or normal aging. Coverage and premiums for voluntary long-term care insurance depend on the program and your age at enrollment.
This page includes only highlights of optional long-term care insurance. See the Details Tab for more information.

This policy is intended to provide payment toward care that becomes necessary for persons unable to care for themselves due to chronic illness, severe physical impairment, the normal aging process, or cognitive impairment, such as Alzheimer's disease or senile dementia, which requires constant supervision.

It also includes services offered through adult day health care programs and other community agencies. The plans are designed to help safeguard financial assets and plan for the future by providing financial protection against the devastating cost of long-term care.

A spouse or domestic partner, parents and/or parents-in-law may also be covered, even if the primary Fund participant chooses not to enroll.
Upon separation from service, long-term care insurance may be continued by making direct payments.
In order to qualify for coverage, each person must complete and return an application directly to the LTC carrier: John Hancock Mutual Life Insurance Company. Payments may be made through pension deductions by attaching a Pension Deduction Authorization (also available from the Fund Office).
Premiums are determined by the benefit chosen and age at initial enrollment.
