Start 2015 with some important legal chores
We have a brand-new year and there’s so much to be done. Everyone likes to have a few resolutions as goals to reach in a 12 month period, but not everybody is going to keep every resolution. Once all the football games are over here are three New Year’s resolutions that you ought to keep. If you have a group legal plan these will not be difficult at all.
- Double Check Those Warranties and Contracts
You may have purchased a warranty along with that special present at Christmas. Take a very close look at the language. Companies are going to uphold warranties, but only under specific situations. For example, if you use aftermarket parts instead of OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) for any car repair the warranty may not cover it. An attorney who is part of a group legal plan that offers review of legal paperwork as a group legal service can help. He or she will tell you what is covered by the warranty. In no uncertain terms it prevents you from making a hasty mistake.
2. Have That Last Will and Testament Written
This is not something to put off anymore. If you die without a will your beneficiaries are going to be in a very hot mess. People could contest your estate and the whole thing might end up months if not years in probate. Drafting a will is one of most commonly used group legal services offered by a plan. The work is done by an attorney who is knowledgeable in probate law. That same attorney can go one step further and file the will with the courts.
3. Draft a Living Will/Medical Power Of Attorney Document
For the sake of your family this is very important. If you are in a terminal health situation and cannot communicate, there is nothing your family can do for you. The healthcare facility has the responsibility of keeping you on life support systems indefinitely. Your own personal wishes are not on paper and therefore will not be respected. Having a living will and medical power of attorney will allow decisions to be made on your behalf. These will contain your instructions. A group legal plan attorney who lives close by can prepare these legal documents without trouble. Depending on the provision of the group legal services plan, unlimited telephone calls can be made to the lawyer on the situation and face-to-face consultations can be arranged as well.
All of this is going to provide peace of mind. You don’t want to have a nasty surprise when it comes to a warranty, and your family does not want rude shocks if something should happen to you. Legal resolutions sometimes seem to be hard to complete because of the administrative effort that has to be expended. Sometimes the group legal plan makes it very difficult to get services, and that can be a serious setback. You want to be able to get what you need when you need it. Any group legal services benefit that can’t provide good administration is not worth bothering with at all.
