Who may initiate your Long Term Care Claim?

Who will manage your claim?
You or your legal representative. You are not required to elect an attorney-in-fact using a Power of Attorney. However, your personal claim information (health and financial) is accessible only by you or your legal representative(s).

What are your Policy or Certificate eligibility requirements?
Genworth recommends that you read and have a general understanding of your policy or certificate, as it outlines the specific requirements that you must meet before you may access your Long Term Care Benefits.

What are the eligibility requirements for your Care Provider(s)?
Care providers may also need to meet specific policy or certificate criteria; however, obtaining care before initiating a claim is not required.
