In-Force Rate Action Announcement: New Jersey (Privileged Choice® and Classic Select®)

As part of the strategy for our long-term care insurance business, we continue pursuing initiatives to improve the risk and profitability profile of our business, including premium increases on our in-force policies, as needed.

Alabama has now allowed the following increase for New Jersey certificates issued under a group master policy issued to a trust in Alabama:

New Jersey
Product Series Increase Percentage
Privileged Choice 12.8%
Classic Select 12.8%

This rate increase was filed and approved in accordance with the laws and regulations of Alabama in which these certificates were issued. The New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance does not review rate increase requests in connection with an out of state group policy.

Communications Timeline
Servicing agents will receive a list of their impacted certificate holders in this state one week prior to the start of certificate holder notifications. Certificate holder notifications will begin September 5, 2017 and will continue throughout the next year. Impacted certificate holders will be notified at least 60 days in advance of their billing anniversary dates.

NOTE: Another rate increase for these certificates was already approved for 30% to be implemented next year. Servicing agents will be similarly notified prior to the 60 day certificate holder notification.
