You may be entitled to caregiver benefits. For auto insurance policies renewed after September 1, 2010, this is now an optional benefit. If you purchased this benefit an injured person is entitled to caregiver benefits if at the time of the accident the insured person was residing with a person in need of care. The insured person must also be the primary caregiver for the person in need of care and does not receive any compensation for engaging in caregiver activities. The maximum amount payable for the first person in need of care is $250.00 per week and for each additional person in need of care is $50.00 per week.
