Members

Who is eligible for the Legal Plan?

Our Legal Plan is offered as a voluntary benefit through your employer. Coverage expands to select family members as well. Details are outlined in our Legal Plan Overview.

What out of pocket expense might I expect?

The Legal Resources Plan covers all attorney fees for fully covered services. However, you are responsible for non-attorney expenses such as court costs, filing fees or any fines asserted.

Does the plan cover dependents?

Yes! Legal Resources considers spouses, unmarried children under 19 who reside with you, and full-time students up to age 26 as qualifying dependents.

How do I contact my Law Firm?

Your membership card will have all the contact information needed to contact your law firm. You may also look up your law firm's contact information on our website. When you call your law firm, please let them know you are a Legal Resources Member and provide the membership ID number listed on your Member Card.

Are pre-existing issues covered?

Yes! Pre-existing matters are covered at a significant discount off the hourly rate of the attorney. It is very important to join Legal Resources before you have a legal need to enjoy the maximum savings from the plan.

Does the employee pay for the plan?

There is no cost to the employer. The Legal Resources Plan is 100% employee funded.

Identify Theft Protection

Doesn't my credit card company already provide identity protection?

Your credit card company may cover fraudulent purchases made with your card, but nearly 70% of identity theft results from non-credit card related fraud. Some of these thefts include data breaches, stolen Social Security Numbers, tax fraud, and hackers taking over bank accounts.

Is there any paperwork I have to fill out to sign up for this product?

You will enroll according to the guidelines set by your company. There is no additional paperwork required. You will create an online profile based on instructions sent to you by Legal Resources. However, if an incident occurs, identity restoration specialists may need you to fill out some paperwork depending on the matter.

How does the identity protection plan work?

The Legal Resources Identity Protection Plan continuously monitors thousands of websites, chat rooms, blogs, and public records for potential threats to your identity. You will immediately receive an alert of suspicious activity through our rapid alert system via email. If you become a victim of identity theft, you will speak with certified protection experts who know exactly what to do to quickly help you recover from identity theft.

Is this an individual or a family plan?

Plans are available as individual, couple, and family plans. However, plan availability is based on employer-specific policies. Check with your HR department to verify what your employer offers.

How do I access my dashboard?

You can access your dashboard from any web browser or smart device. Follow the link associated with your plan type for more details:
