4 Reasons Why Employees Appreciate Group Legal Plans

stockfresh_4689066_the-perfect-group-of-business-people_sizeM-300x221As the world becomes increasingly digital, employers must adapt quickly to changes to remain competitive. An excellent way for companies to attract new employees is to provide them with pre-paid legal services. Such benefits help provide solutions to common legal challenges that anyone can face. Here are four reasons why employees want this type of benefit.

  1. Pre-paid legal services give individuals access to expert consultation without paying large hourly rates for lawyers’ time. With such a benefit in place, employees can get quality advice regarding important decisions, such as drafting simple wills, and learn how to process a consumer protection claim better.


  1. Large fees concern anyone needing an attorney, and a specialized attorney costs even more. A good group legal plan offers discounts if it is necessary to refer a plan member to an attorney outside the system. Permitting the other attorney to perform pre-paid legal services, such as making telephone calls on behalf of the plan member, makes the benefit even more attractive.


  1. Employers want to convey to their workers that management cares deeply about their concerns. A group legal plan that provides access to superior legal services demonstrates that an organization cares not only about the employees but their families as well. Legal procedures, such as a living will, might create problems for some families. Having a third party draft the document reduces the amount of stress.


  1. Offering a group legal plan adds value to the employee benefits package. Many organizations do not offer this type of coverage, but those who do demonstrate to their employees that management will provide added value to the employee benefits that go beyond standard coverage.


Countrywide Pre—Paid Legal Services has been providing benefits to organizations of all sizes for over 30 years. Our plan is one of the best in the industry.

The primary reason is that we work with the best attorneys. Our nationwide network of lawyers assures plan members that there is an attorney in their community who will hear their concerns and address their problems. Empathy matters to us. It is why we will recruit lawyers not only on their legal expertise but also their ability to listen to concerns and show sincere sympathy.


We Work Closely with Our Clients

Employers rarely like to work with benefits vendors who are hundreds of miles away and are not easily reached. Countrywide maintains close relationships with all our clients regardless of their size. We routinely make contact with clients to make sure that everything is going as it should.

Countrywide will not offer a boilerplate. We do not because we understand that each organization has unique needs. We have the client work with us to create a benefit that all their employees may use. We explain each benefit option to management and point out the value of each.

Countrywide will then step back and ask the prospective client to pick those options which will be part of their group legal plan. We know that not all our services will be selected, which is fine. Having a benefit that all employees will appreciate is far more important. Countrywide will provide streamlined administration and superior pre-paid legal services for every Countrywide plan.

Additionally, we provide services such as unlimited telephone calls to the attorney on a given subject free of charge. We will also let the attorneys write letters on behalf of a plan member on letterhead stationery. Each option has something that a person can use to make life easier. We encourage you to contact us if you have any questions about the Countrywide plan. We will answer your inquiries, and we sincerely hope that we can be of service to you and your employees.
