Title 50B RCW created a Long-Term Services and Supports Trust Program, now called WA Cares Fund (WAC), to provide long-term care benefits for eligible Washington residents. The program is funded through employee premium deductions of 0.58 percent ($0.58 per $100) of earnings. Premium deductions will begin on January 1, 2022.
