Countrywide Has a Referral System




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.

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.

Financial Welfare of Beneficiaries is Protectedstockfresh_2662466_last-will-and-testament-concept-of-estate-planning_sizeS_124228-300x196


Financial planning is not for the living alone. You should think about how you will disburse your assets during your life, but you also need to consider how money and property will be divided after you are gone. Too many people forget that and put off writing a will for some later day. The day finally arrives, however. Your estate may be forced into a situation where there is trouble for your survivors. A group legal plan can help prevent a financial tragedy.

The Court May Have to Decide

The state law is intended to protect the beneficiaries and survivors. The courts try to guarantee people get what they justifiably deserve. Regrettably, estate without a will is in the hands of the court and an appointed court administrator. Final disbursement could take months or even years. It creates a financial difficulty for survivors. A group legal plan must provide an option for drafting a simple will. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services has such a benefit as an integral part of its group legal plan format. Continue reading

It Can End Employee Worry



You may think of financial wellness is not important, but MetLife disagrees.

Holiday shopping brings out the best and the worst in people. In this season of giving there’s also some underhanded taking going on.

Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal services is different. We do offer group legal plan benefits, but we also have a means to protect your identity.

Time Helps the Thief
