We all have good reason to worry about hacking. It is the most common form of cyber theft and is an industry by itself. Hackers are very sophisticated in the work that they do and pose a very serious threat to financial wellness. It takes more than a standard group legal plan to confront these criminals.

Hackers Are Getting Better

Hackers have become increasingly more ingenious and bold. This year has already seen both Chipotle, and Verizon hacked by outside parties. These Internet thieves are not creating individual credit card accounts with the information.

Employees expect to pay medical premiums either bi-weekly or monthly. They’re able to budget for these expenses and know what the figures will be. Something that is extremely difficult to budget for, and catches a person by surprise, is the medical deductible. It has the potential of harming the financial wellness of anyone.

Employers in the past few years have tried to contain medical insurance costs by raising the deductible. It means that deductibles that were once one or $2000 are now up to $5000 per year. The crisis sets in when someone has an illness or condition that is not temporary. Continue reading

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.

Medical Powers of Attorney Are Critical

Paper, paper, paper. Everything seems to have a form or a document attached to it. Many people don’t bother with certain legal papers because they’re tired of the pile. An example is medical powers of attorney. Not everybody understands the importance but good group legal plans allow for help with this document.

It is important to Have Medical Powers of Attorney

The reason is clarity. Anyone who is the victim of a major car accident or medical disaster might be in a coma. The hospital does not know what this person wants as far as treatment. This can extend to life support systems which do not automatically turn off. The hospital staff is justifiably concerned about any lawsuits and will keep patient on life support indefinitely. That can cause expenses to skyrocket as time goes on. There’s also cost that is highly personal and very emotional. A patient who is near death can linger on life support systems. This causes agony of hope for love ones who pray for America which may never come. At the same time, these people are looking over their shoulders at the possibility of mounting debt. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services is very familiar with the anxiety and suffering. We have the drafting of medical powers of attorney as a group legal plan benefit. Continue reading

You Can Win the Day in Courtsmallclaims-300x214

 

Not that many people have a day in court because most will settle before the cases are filed. However, there are situations where individuals go before a small claims court. This is a bench that hears disputes of perhaps $5000 or less, although some states have a higher threshold. It can get confusing and a group legal plan can help sort things out.

There are many reasons why issues end up in small claims court. It can be an argument over a property line, a warranty which is not being honored, or contract that has still has not been completed. The difference between this court and others is the lack of an attorney. Legal counsel will not represent you in court, and you must rely on yourself, instead. It is a reason why some cases don’t get anywhere. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services knows that not all cases before small claims are frivolous. Many are substantial and require a ruling. We wish to be of help and it is why preparing a small claims court case is one of our group legal plan options. Continue reading

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.
