Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) Trust


Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) Trust Act

In 2019 the state enacted a long-term care insurance benefit for all eligible Washingtonians, funded by worker contributions into a trust fund. The WA Cares Fund is the first of its kind in the United States and is the latest example of the state’s standing as a national leader in long-term care policy. The WA Cares Fund both protects our workers against the economic and social risks of needing long-term care as they age and better positions the state to cope with the fiscal and economic costs of the coming age wave and long-term care challenge.
