The Federal Long Term Care Insurance Program (FLTCIP) Open Season ends June 24, 2011!

Now is the Time to Take the Next Step!

If you’ve decided to take advantage of the financial security and independence the FLTCIP may provide, then now is definitely the right time,” said Joan Melanson, Director of Program Promotion for the FLTCIP.  “With abbreviated underwriting, there are only a few key decisions to make, just seven health questions to answer, and a minimum of effort needed to apply.

During the FLTCIP Open Season, actively at work Federal and U.S. Postal Service (USPS) employees and their spouses, and active members of the uniformed services and their spouses can apply with abbreviated underwriting.  And in keeping with President Obama's June 17, 2009 memorandum Federal Benefits and Non-Discrimination, same-sex domestic partners of Federal and USPS employees can also apply with abbreviated underwriting. 

While the FLTCIP accepts applications from eligible individuals throughout the year, the 2011 FLTCIP Open Season offers more people the opportunity to apply with abbreviated underwriting—and it’s the first Open Season since the FLTCIP was introduced in 2002. Applying now could not be easier — you can even do it online or over the phone.
