Legal Benefits can resolve serious problems
Good employee benefits are means by which a company can attract top talent. Whatever assistance an employer can give to make daily life easier is always appreciated, and modern society forces issues on people from every angle. Contracts and leases, wills and court cases, all can drive up the frustration levels of a hard-working employee. Group legal service plans are intended to help with problems that may involve legal intervention. The more comprehensive the benefit is, the greater value it has for a plan member.
The Elements of a Great Benefit
A group legal plan that truly provides service to plan members has to be able to cover situations that are fairly common in our increasingly legalistic society. The features should include things like review of contracts and legal documents, advice on how to deal with government agencies, assistance in drafting wills and powers of attorney, and help in matters that involve small claims court. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services designs group legal service plans that cover these areas and adds a little extra as well. The attorneys that are part of our legal network are required to accept an unlimited number of phone calls on a given situation, as well as make phone calls on behalf of plan members and write letters for them. Consumer protection advice is an additional benefit that can be part of a Countrywide group legal plan. Emergencies that require an attorney can happen anywhere, even when a person’s on vacation miles away from home. The Countrywide legal referral network can match a plan member up with an attorney in the area, guaranteeing that the person will have legal advice immediately.
