If you are a state employee in VRS Plan 1, VRS Plan 2 or the Hybrid Retirement Plan, the State Police Officers' Retirement System (SPORS) or the Virginia Law Officers' Retirement System (VaLORS) and participate in the Virginia Sickness and Disability Program (VSDP), you are covered under the VSDP Long-Term Care Plan at no cost to you. Long-term care services provide help with everyday life tasks because of a prolonged health problem or following a major illness, injury or surgery. This loss of independence can affect people of all ages. Without long-term care coverage, the cost of these services can quickly deplete savings or retirement income.
VSDP Long-Term Care Plan Services
The VSDP Long-Term Care Plan covers nursing home care, hospice care, assisted living care, community-based care and at-home care, among other services. Your caregiver also may be eligible for assistance under the plan. The maximum daily benefit amount is $96 with a lifetime maximum of $70,080. See VSDP Long-Term Care Plan Features.
