High Value Benefit for Employees - A Legal Services Plan
Why Offer A Legal Plan to Your Employees?
Group legal services are one of the fastest growing benefits offered by leading employers. They are an easy, cost-effective way to give employees affordable access to quality legal representation - something that over 70% of Americans need on an annual basis. There's no surprise why it's one of the top employee benefits in the market.
Legal situations can touch us all. Consider the following:
- 70% of U.S. households will have a legal need this year where having an attorney would be beneficial.
- Over 50% of Americans do not have a Will.
- There are over 20 million divorces in the U.S. annually.
Three common reasons Americans don't use attorneys for their legal needs:
- People don't know an attorney or haven't developed a relationship with a law firm to discuss a personal situation.
- People don't know what their legal rights and options are.
- At an average cost of $300-400 per hour, legal representation is too expensive.
Group legal plans exist to reduce these barriers to legal assistance. Simply put, group legal plans take the high costs and uncertainty out of the equation when it comes to legal issues. By offering legal representation through a managed network, legal plans like Legal Resources provide access to top quality attorneys at an affordable, fixed monthly price.
