Long Term Care

The Washington State Legislature established a long-term care (LTC) insurance benefit for all eligible workers to address future long-term care needs. Under this law, workers will contribute 0.58% of pay beginning January 1, 2022 to the WA Cares Fund while we are working and eligible individuals will have access to a lifetime benefit amount that, should they need it, they can use on a variety of long-term services and support.
