Identity theft is a serious crime and one that is growing each day, but there is a way prepaid legal services can help you. What many people do not realize about this crime is the fact that it doesn’t have to involve anyone in your state. So someone who lives in Atlantic City, New Jersey can actually have their identity stolen by someone who lives across the country. There are dozens of ways it can happen but people do not understand recovering from it is harder than it appears. Let’s say hypothetically you apply for a loan for a new car and it turns out your credit score is terrible and the reason is because someone on the other side of the country has taken out multiple credit cards in your name and charged away. You would probably notify the bank and the authorities so the cards are canceled immediately and your name is absolved of any debt. To most people the matter would be taken care of but legally there are still issues to deal with in order to get approved for that loan. Issues you would need the help of an attorney to take care of and that is where Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services can really help.
The advantage of pre-paid legal services to the employer is the fact that these benefits can save an employee a lot of time, time they would have to spend missing work, and a lot of money, but the legal service plans do not cost the company anything. The bill is taken care of by small payroll deductions so the cost of the attorneys is not an issue. The additional advantage to the employee is they can tap into a network of qualified attorneys who know exactly how to handle recovering from identity theft and can get the matter resolved quickly. Because this is a matter handled by an employee benefit, the employee does not have to run out and search everywhere for an affordable but qualified attorney. They have a network available to them at all times with unlimited consultations and face to face meetings. This network of attorneys can handle all types of legal issues, not just identity theft, and they provide a great service to your employees and your company. This is how prepaid legal services can help with the problems created from a crime like identity theft. People do not always understand the true problems this crime can create for them even after the culprit is stopped. For that they need an attorney to assist them in getting their credit score repaired.
