Details about Washington State’s mandated long-term care law and payroll tax are slowly emerging. Even so there are so many unknowns and the opt-out provisions are vague.
With so much left unclear, the looming deadline and things changing so quickly, Mutual of Omaha is responding with caution, taking an observational approach.
From the Desk of
Effective immediately, Mutual of Omaha is suspending long-term care sales in the state of Washington.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Applications submitted on or before the end of the day June 16, 2021, will be processed as normal.
- All pending in-house business will be processed as normal.
- Any applications received June 17, 2021, and after will not be accepted. No exceptions will be made.
As a leading long-term care insurance provider, Mutual of Omaha has a responsibility to our policyholders and distribution partners to ensure our product offerings are used as designed, offering security and peace of mind to our valued customers.
We anticipate resuming sales in Washington once again in November 2021.
