United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia (Richmond Division)
Case No. 3:21-cv-00019-REP
Welcome to the Information Website for the Halcom v. Genworth Life Insurance Class Action Settlement
If you own a PCS I or PCS II long-term care insurance policy issued by Genworth Life Insurance Company or Genworth Life Insurance Company of New York, you may be part of a class action settlement. Genworth has agreed to settle a proposed class action involving certain PCS I and PCS II long-term care policies.
A proposed settlement has been reached between the Parties in the Halcom, et al. v. Genworth Life Insurance Company, et al. class action lawsuit pending in the United States District Court of the Eastern District of Virginia (the “Class Action”), and on August 30, 2021, the settlement was granted preliminary approval by the Court supervising the lawsuit.
The purpose of this website is to describe the Class Action, to inform Class Members of the proposed settlement terms, and to inform Class Members of their potential rights and options in connection with the settlement.
In January 2021, four Policyholders brought a lawsuit on behalf of a class alleging that Genworth should have included certain additional information in letters sent to Genworth PCS I and PCS II Policyholders about premium rate increases. Genworth denies all allegations and maintains that its disclosures to Policyholders were reasonable, appropriate and truthful.
Pending final Court approval and subject to certain conditions, impacted Policyholders may receive certain disclosures and policy options, including potential payments or credits. If you are a Class Member, you may be entitled to obtain this relief, and you may have other rights relating to the proposed settlement.
Because the rights of Class Members may be affected, it is extremely important that you read this website carefully.
