Employees are concerned about financial wellness. They budget for loan payments, medical bills, and contribute to a 401(k) retirement plan. These are all financially prudent behaviors, but there is more to fiscal responsibility. Those concerned about personal financial wellness might forget about their dependents.

Estate Realities

An inheritance is not always the path to a pampered life. An estate can pay large bills and help a son or daughter pay for college. People forget about drafting wills and die intestate without a will. This could jeopardize the financial health of survivors. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services helps employees plan for the financial wellness of family members with a simple will plan option. Employees usually don’t require a lengthy document; six pages will suffice. A Countrywide group legal plan attorney can draft a simple will. It is not complicated, but there is power in the paragraphs.

Delays are the greatest challenges to an estate. Probate court takes its time moves at a slow, judicious speed. Things will go even slower when there is no will. Continue reading

Social media was primarily something worked on in dorm rooms 15 years ago. Today, it is a major force in American culture and it is the source of a lot of litigation. There are new laws and court cases regarding the use of social media and not all attorneys know what to do. Some, however, have become experts in this type of jurisprudence. They are not ordinary lawyers and they command large fees. They’re the kind of attorneys that most group legal plans do not have in their networks.
Legal Referrals Are Sometimes Necessary

Regrettably, not every general practitioner in the law courts is familiar with the laws and rules governing special areas of law. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services has a nationwide network of attorneys, but we readily admit there are certain areas of the law that requires special help. If we do not have attorneys that are expert in certain situations, we have no problem making referrals. Continue reading

Group legal plans are not all the same. Even though vendors may have almost identical benefit options, pre-paid legal services will differ. It is how the various benefits are administered, along with secondary benefits, they create the disparity. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services is a leader in the industry because of the overall quality of what we give.

Countrywide will provide basic group legal plan benefits such as writing a simple will, consumer protection advice, and drafting medical powers of attorney. We go a little bit further than other vendors, however, by some of the other activities we will do for the sake of a plan member. These include the following:

It Makes Medical Care Decisions Easier

Employees will plan their healthcare for the coming year. They will look at the calendar and determine when they will make medical appointments, and when certain procedures will be scheduled. This is often to manage better the deductibles that they must pay. It all makes sense, but there’s one thing that many of these people are forgetting. What is going to happen if something truly drastic occurs?

Tragedy Comes Unexpectedly

Accidents can happen, and chronic seizures strike without warning. These can leave a person in a coma, unable to tell doctors what type of treatment is preferred. Drastic situations may include a person being on life-support with no chance of revival. Hospitals are required to keep a person alive as long as possible. Living wills can help provide guidance, and good group legal plans have them. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services include drafting of a living will in the group legal plan benefit options.

Unfortunately, some people are in such financial despair that only a debt management plan will get them out of trouble. Countrywide offers all kinds of services. It could be as simple as a budget analysis or as complex as how to best deal with credit cards. It depends on the person. Continue reading
