Let’s face it — many of your employees can’t afford an attorney on their own and you’re always looking for new benefits to offer. Adding a legal plan to your benefits program will help you attract and retain employees. And because it’s a voluntary benefit, offering a legal plan has no direct cost to your business.
If an employee knows they will need legal representation in the next year, then a legal service plan is an obvious perk. And even if they don’t have the need now, legal issues occur every day. When you get married, have a baby, buy a home, or loose a loved one, legal documents will be required. Having access to a legal service plan helps your employees overcome the intimidation of an unexpected legal crisis by being given the option to contact a lawyer.
One of the main reasons people never use an attorney is the expense. MetLaw, a group legal plan available through MetLife, covers all your personal and financial legal expenses for less than $1 a day.
What sets MetLaw apart from other legal plans?
Unlimited use – there’s no max to the number of times you can use it. If necessary, you could literally contact an attorney every day for the life of the policy. MetLaw offers convenient access to a large network of experienced attorneys.
No deductibles – less than $1 a day and it’s yours. There are no additional fees associated with owning (or using) a legal service plan. That’s right. No matter how many times you use a network attorney over the course of the year for covered legal matters, all you pay is your monthly premium.
No claim forms – when you contact a network attorney, there’s no paperwork involved. Not even online submissions. To use your legal service plan, simply call the number on your card and explain your need. For example, say “loan closing” and your network attorney will handle it from there.
Affordable coverage for everyday legal matters – including traffic ticket defense and will preparation. If you get a speeding ticket in another state, say 6 hours away, an attorney will show up on your behalf, so you don’t have to.
Your spouse, dependents and other relatives are also all covered on your legal plan for your single base monthly fee. That means if your son or daughter gets a speeding ticket in another state, an attorney will show up on their behalf too.
By adding this unique product to your benefit offering, you set yourself apart from other employers and better yet — you increase the competitiveness of your employee benefits program without increasing your financial contribution.
You can offer MetLaw through your business with as few as 2 employees enrolled. Outside of IXSolutions, this product is only available to businesses with over 200 employees.
