Long term care insurance helps cover the cost of services such as nursing home care or at-home care to assist with bathing, eating or other activities of daily living. These services are not typically covered by medical insurance. If you would like to purchase long term care insurance for yourself or a family member, the Commonwealth of Virginia (COV) offers a plan that Arlington County employees and retirees can participate in. If you already have long term care insurance through Genworth, this is also an opportunity to increase your coverage.
For information visit the Genworth-COV website or call 1-866-859-6060. Information is also available at https://www.varetire.org/members/benefits/long-term-care/voluntary-long-term-care/index.asp. Please note this benefit is provided directly by Genworth through the state’s contract. This benefit is not administered by Arlington County Human Resources.

Arlington County’s Human Resources Department has reached out to ACREA concerning a retiree survey they are conducting this fall. Below is their message and the related link to the survey.
“Arlington County Government is interested in engaging our retirees as resources during this rough labor market and beyond. Are you interested in sharing your skills in some small way, i.e. mentoring new young staff; filling in so staff can get time off; working on a project of a short nature? These opportunities will allow you to stay connected with the Arlington community and share your skills and abilities. We are reaching out to see if you would be interested and what your expectations would be for this type of program. This survey would help us gather information and would help us determine if this would be beneficial for the retired employees as well as the County as a whole.”
Here is the County survey link!
