Payments can be met spider-pocket-189x300

 

Employees generally like the employer-sponsored group health insurance. They appreciate the assistance given with medical expenses, particularly catastrophic bills. Employees grumble, however, about the deductibles. The deductibles in most employer-sponsored group health insurance policies have been rising steadily over the last few years. They’re at a point where the deductible can be a threat to financial wellness.

Deductibles Can Grow Medical Debt

An employee must use all the deductible before the full health benefit can be utilized. It is why those who file for bankruptcy due to medical debt ordinarily have health insurance; the deductible stands in the way of the health benefit. Continue reading

The government can confuse people. Bureaucracies are both national, state, and local. You may have to deal with one and not the other two or, all three at the same time. The average employee is going to find all this frustrating. Many group legal plans do not bother with helping but Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services does. Our group legal plan benefits include assistance with government agencies.

Your tax dollars fund various services through public agencies. These organizations require certain types of information. What can get confusing is what is needed by a federal agency, may be entirely different than what is requested by a local municipality. On top of everything else, some deadlines need to be met. The wrong information will probably result in an application returned to the individual for corrections. It creates an administrative delay that might end up with a missed deadline. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services offer group legal plan benefits for organizations. Our attorneys provide help with those public agencies. Continue reading

It is possible that the new tax reforms will change the housing industry. Changes in tax deductions can cause more people to rent, causing the price of housing to drop. It means that the house is no longer a financial investment but a home. It can cause a change in attitude for a lot of people because they may have to hold onto a house longer than they originally thought. Purchase of a house, therefore, becomes a long-term investment.

The house is also the largest investment most people will make in a lifetime. It is more complicated than a retail transaction. There are mountains of paperwork and procedures involved in the purchase. Not everybody understands how to qualify for a loan, but it is a very important part of the financial wellness issue. It also is true that some of the actors in the home investment process are not committed to helping people. We provide education to help homebuyer be a smart shopper. Continue reading

We are surrounded by technology. There are mobile apps, Internet websites, and social media intended to connect us to other people and the services we need. That’s nice, but it doesn’t always work. There are some needs, such as pre-paid legal services, that need a little bit more than the tap of a mouse pad to connect. A group legal plan is judged by the quality of the services provided.

Human Contact is Essential

People need answers that are more developed then a recording or script on a website. The legal dilemmas folks encounter may require separate answers for individual concerns. It is something that is not easily done with technology. People matter when it comes to pre-paid legal services. Arranging a meeting with a lawyer is not always done by other group legal plans. Countrywide not only makes meetings easy but encourages such conferences. Our nationwide network of attorneys allows for a plan member to easily get in contact with a lawyer. The consultation can be arranged, and a face-to-face discussion allowed. Continue reading

Foreign Workers Are Grateful for the Helpimmigration-doors-300x288

 

The United States has always been a favorite place for hard-working foreigners. These people come to this country with work visas and perhaps the hope of someday becoming citizens. The opportunity and the wages are both major incentives to come here. A problem surfaces in dealing with the government. People sometimes have difficulty, and pre-paid legal services can help remove obstacles.

Many are fluent in English but only when it comes to speaking it. Our language is complicated and legal/administrative jargon is even more difficult. A foreign worker can have trouble understanding what various application forms want. Also, the deadlines may be something entirely different.

Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services has an option which offers help dealing with public agencies. Our nationwide network of attorneys is part of the group legal plan, and they can offer needed assistance quickly. The Countrywide professional will also examine what information is being asked by the agency. If the plan member does not have what is needed, the attorney will tell what is required. Countrywide will make sure that any submission to a public agency is in proper order without anything left out. Continue reading

Drafting wills is a common benefit of a group legal plan that some folks avoid. The last will is not on everyone’s daily bucket list, and there are those who want to forget about it. This is a recognition of mortality but drafting a will is a pre-paid legal services benefit that cannot be ignored. It helps prevent time from becoming a real thief.

Intestate is a legal term for an estate for which there is no will. Those estates which have a simple will attached to it move quickly through the courts. Intestate situations do not. Instead, they become a matter for the probate court which takes a very active role. Continue reading

Countrywide Excels at It!

There are group legal plans which do not understand communication. The vendors provide service at a distance, or through a page on a website. This may look efficient, but it is not. Communication is more important than this.

Quality Matters

A little extra should be part of the services. Anyone can easily forget a question or two, and getting back to the attorney is important. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services allows an unlimited number of telephone calls to the attorney in each situation. It means additional questions can be asked at another time. This ability to further communicate with the lawyer at no cost helps. Continue reading

An exceptional group legal plan is defined by the service it provides. There are certain options a client should expect within the plan document, but pre-paid legal services has to go the distance. There should be an ability to communicate one-on-one, and have all questions answered. Anything less is unacceptable. It’s sad, but some of the plan vendors don’t seem to care about the service. They believe that web-based assistance is more important than direct contact. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services does not subscribe to this low-quality. We know what people really want when it comes to good service.
