To qualify for benefits from the WA Cares Fund, you must have worked and contributed to the fund for at least ten years at any point in your life without a break of five or more years within those ten years, or three of the last six years at the time you apply for the benefit, and at least 500 hours per year during those years. They are having employers take $0.58 out of every $100 for a long-term health care fund.

But, if you are an older person still working, you will never see a dime of this because the majority of older workers will retire before the ten-year period. All your money will go to the fund and never back to you.
