If you were a California Citizen on February 1, 2013, and you purchased a Long-Term Care (“LTC”) Insurance Policy between 1995 and 2004 (LTC1 or LTC2) from CalPERS that included “automatic inflation protection benefits,” and you were subjected to the 85% premium increase announced by CalPERS in 2013 and implemented in 2015 and 2016, you are entitled to participate in this proposed new class action settlement.

UPDATE: November 9, 2023

The Settlement became Final on September 28, 2023.

Under the terms of the Settlement, your Final Settlement Category and Award amount will be determined as of this date. In January 2024, you will receive a mailing from the Settlement Administrator providing (1) notification of your Final Category and Award; and (2) a check in the amount of your final Award.

You may have recently received a letter from CalPERS containing a refund check. This check IS NOT your final Settlement award. This check was a refund for premiums paid for your policy after it was cancelled on September 28, 2023.

Category A Class Members who elected Option 1 – Premium Refund:
The information in this paragraph only applies to Class Members who elected to surrender their Policies and receive an 80% premium refund (less any benefits received). The Final Settlement Date was September 28, 2023, which means your CalPERS LTC Policy will be surrendered and you can stop paying premiums as of that date. You will be notified in January 2024 of your final refund amount, but please understand that it will include 80% of all premiums paid to CalPERS (less any benefits received) through the Final Settlement Date. We have been advised by CalPERS that premium payments deducted from Class Members’ pension checks—or that are set up for autopay through their bank accounts—should stop automatically, and any payments deducted after September 27 will be refunded by CalPERS. If you make the payment to CalPERS by check, you should stop sending premium payments.

Class Members who elected Option 1 but recently went On-Claim, applied to go On-Claim, or think they may need to go On-Claim:
If you elected Option 1, but applied to go On-Claim or went On-Claim before September 28, 2023, or believe you may need to go On-Claim before October 28, 2023, then you may qualify for Category I or another process provided for in the Settlement that would allow you to reverse your election.
