Prepaid Legal Services

Tools and Resources



HOW THE PLAN WORKS


The Prepaid Legal Services Plan gives employees access to more than 4,000 participating law firms and more than 9,000 participating lawyers in the United States.

To use the plan, call the MetLife Benefits line at 800-821-6400, weekdays 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. or visit www.legalplans.com. Select "thinkingaboutenrolling" and enter password 1500626. A customer service representative will refer you to a participating attorney near you. Evening and Saturday appointments are available.

If you have a preferred attorney to use who is not on the list, the plan can still save you money on legal fees for covered services by reimbursing you for the cost of services rendered by a non-plan attorney based on a set fee schedule. You will be responsible for paying the difference between the attorney's charges and the plan's reimbursement amount.

Through the plan you, your spouse/SSDP and your legal dependent children can have access to covered legal services for the same affordable price.
