Virginia Sickness and Disability Program Long-Term Care Plan (State Employees)

If you are a retiree who participated in the Virginia Sickness and Disability Program (VSDP), you may continue your VSDP Long-Term Care Plan at affordable group rates in retirement. Long-term care services provide help with everyday life tasks because of a prolonged health problem or following a major illness, injury or surgery.

To continue your coverage, submit the Authorization of Coverage Retention for the Long-Term Care Plan (VRS-170) and the Protection Against Unintentional Lapse of Long-Term Care (VRS-171) to the Long-Term Care Group, Inc. within 60 days of leaving employment or retiring. This option is not available after 60 days. For more information, call the Long-Term Care Group, Inc. at 1-800-761-4057.
