Sept. 16, 2021: Updated with additional resources from UC emeriti and retiree associations

If you participated in the Long-Term Care Benefit Plan with California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) you may have received information in the mail about a class action settlement (officially referred to as Holly Wedding, et al. V. California Public Employees’ Retirement System, et al., Case No. BC517444; or “Settlement”).

Unlike other benefit plans offered by the University, the Long-Term Care Plan is sponsored and managed independently by CalPERS, not by UC. As such, UC is not a party to this Settlement.

There is an important deadline on Sept. 22, 2021, for submitting an “Individual Award Acknowledgement and Election Form,” should you choose one of the options (option 2) described in the statement. If you do not submit this form by Sept. 22, your eventual options will be limited.

The final deadline to choose is Dec. 13, 2021. You may wish to consult your legal or financial advisor(s) concerning your options under the Settlement. UC is not able to provide legal advice regarding your rights under the Settlement.
