All current California public employees, retirees, their spouses, parents, parents-in-law, adult children and adult siblings between the ages of 18 and 79 are eligible to apply for coverage. Eligible public employees include, but are not limited to, those employed by the State of California and all State departments, state Assembly and Senate, judicial systems, school districts, cities, counties, special districts, public universities and community colleges. Applicants must meet underwriting requirements for acceptance into the program. Public employees do not need to be a member of CalPERS and do not need to be an applicant or policyholder of the CalPERS Long-Term Care Program in order for their relatives to be eligible

The new Long Term Care product is designed to provide innovative, contemporary coverage with the flexibility to meet a variety of participants' needs, including:

  • Plan options that allow applicants to tailor coverage to suit their needs and budgets.
  • Affordable options to help keep pace with the rising costs of receiving long-term care.
  • Benefits that make it easier to receive home care or care outside the United States.

Interested applicants may download an Application Kit and information by going to the CalPERS Long-Term Care website. They may also request a kit by calling (800) 908-9119.
