Employees are able to take advantage of a special opportunity to apply for group long-term care insurance during the enrollment period beginning April 27, 2009, through May 22, 2009. This benefit is being offered on a voluntary basis, which means that, although you are responsible for paying the full cost of the benefit, you and your eligible family members may receive lower premiums and enjoy an easier approval process than with an individual plan. And your group coverage can move with you if you should change jobs, retire, or leave the College.
