The instructions in a living will are helpful. Healthcare providers know what is expected of them because the guidance is clear. However, someone must decide when to implement the living will directions. It is the reason for medical powers of attorney.

The Decision-Maker  Continue reading

They have their visas, and they have the authority to live in our neighborhoods. American business benefits significantly. These newcomers bring skills and knowledge used to increase profit margins and accomplish corporate goals.

stockfresh_4514580_referrals-3d-words-connected-arrows-new-customers-word-of-mouth_sizeS-300x300Group legal plans impress on prospective clients the quality of their services. These vendors do not hesitate to point out their lawyers and how these professionals will help an organization’s employees. It can be embarrassing to recommend a referral outside of the network; it can be viewed as an admission of inadequacy. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services is not afraid to make referrals. We know that this is a means of providing even better service for our clients.

stockfresh_181218_last-will-and-testament_sizeS_72a2cb-300x225Nobody wants to think about death. It will happen to us, but many do not want to think about dying or prepare for that final day. They are hesitant to write a last will, even though it can spare their loved ones a lot of grief. Some of the reasons for not having that document on the bucket list are ridiculous.

 

  1. Writing One Takes Too Much Time and Effort. Not really if you have an excellent attorney drafting the document.

employee-benefits-300x207Group legal plans offer assistance to help folks with common legal issues. Unfortunately, some vendors will only provide a few options, and that is all. They will stress the low prices for their bare-bones benefits, but sometimes low prices mean poor services. Employees expect more than the basics.

Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services go further than writing simple wills or reviewing legal documents. We will include some benefits that do not cost more and add value to the group legal plan we offer employers.

stockfresh_210865_mature-businesswomen-discuss-contract_sizeS-300x208We have an intelligence-driven society. Mental exertion has replaced physical effort, and more people rely on technology and the Internet for nearly everything. It can be exciting, and there is so much information available. That can make work more manageable, but it can also create confusion. 

 

The Internet is a source of data glut. We can contact tons of information and opinions. Too often, ideas or notions grab our attention. These are not always correct or useful. Anyone can be overwhelmed by misinformation, which can be dangerous when it comes to common legal issues.

 

Need for Expertise Continue reading

stockfresh_260360_read-the-fine-print_sizeS-200x300Legal document review sounds extremely complicated. A person might think that the review is done on large contracts or agreements with many players involving all kinds of situations. That is not always the case. There are many documents that ordinary people use that should be reviewed by an attorney. The content of some of these papers may have a binding effect on an individual.

Some Papers Need to Be Looked at Carefully

One obvious document requiring inspection is a rental lease. Those who are going to be moving into a new apartment should have the papers checked to ensure that the language of the lease is valid and clarify the obligations a tenant agrees to follow. Warranties should be looked at so that a person knows what parts are covered in the event of an appliance breaking down. An attorney must look at other documents. These include: Continue reading

lastwilltestament-300x200Simple wills are an essential service of group legal plans. Legal services benefits will permit a plan member to have that last will drafted, but it is ordinarily the basic, simple will. For example, if you wanted to establish a trust, you would have to have an entirely different document. The six-page simple will is what most people need.

Some think that drawing up a simple will is easy. Their reason is that ordinary distributions and fundamental instructions do not require an attorney to do the work. Besides, there are templates on the Internet that make writing a will make quite easy. Continue reading

stockfresh_3091602_good-service-makes-the-difference-chalk-illustration_sizeS-300x168Group legal plans base their value on the services which they will provide. We could not agree more. Of course, employees of a client need to use services that will help them manage common legal problems. However, the key to value is the delivery of what the benefit offers.

 

Items such as simple wills or living wills must be airtight to withstand any challenge. The information needed to apply for government services must be accurate and consistent with existing policies and procedures. It is great to offer an employee consumer protection guidance. However, mistakes make employees doubt the quality, and it does not matter if the error was unintentional. Continue reading

stockfresh_1627257_estate-planning-word-cloud-concept_sizeS-300x300Benefits that promote an employee’s financial well-being should be the focus of every organization. The threat of Great Resignation departures is everywhere, and retention is crucial. Security is essential for many, and estate planning is part of the process.

Avoiding Disasters

There is paperwork connected to estate planning that people cannot ignore. A last will is essential. Too many people think they only have to write their wishes on a piece of paper. That would be an easily contested document. The last illness can carve huge holes in an estate, and no one knows what an unconscious person wants to be done regarding final healthcare. Three documents will prevent an estate calamity: a simple will, a living will, and medical powers of attorney. A Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services benefit offers all of these. Continue reading
