When Will Benefits Begin?
Long-term care benefits begin when a doctor certifies that you are unable to perform two or more of the "Activities of Daily Living" without continual assistance. These activities include:
- Ambulating — walking or managing a walker or wheel chair
- Transferring — getting in and out of bed
- Using the toilet
Failure to perform any two or more of the listed activities triggers the benefit payment. Benefits are also triggered for policyholders suffering from Alzheimer's disease or senile dementia.
