Life can be complicated, finding a qualified attorney shouldn’t be. That’s the idea behind the MetLife Federal Legal Plan that is now available to members of the Federal family.
In essence, being enrolled in the plan is like having a lawyer on retainer. But not just one lawyer —a network of over 18,000 of them. For as low as $12 a month, you have access to expert guidance for over 80 legal matters you might face including buying or selling a home, creating an estate plan, dealing with identity theft, and yes, even handling traffic tickets.
A set monthly rate instead of hourly attorney fees
Hiring an attorney can be expensive — especially when you’re paying by the hour. The current average rate for an experienced lawyer is $391 an hour¹. With the MetLife Federal Legal Plan, you pay a fixed cost every month, either $12 or $20 depending on the plan option you choose. It offers unlimited attorney access for covered legal matters, and you’ll have no co-pays, deductibles, or attorney fees.²
I’m enrolled. What next?
When you need legal assistance, you can choose from a variety of resources. From your member account, you can easily find an attorney and schedule an appointment online or by phone. You can also submit legal questions to an Attorney e-Panel. Online tools are available to easily create wills and other estate planning documents.
What are MetLife customers saying?
One Legal Plan member and their spouse shared that when it was time to arrange their estate, they turned to a MetLife network attorney. “Our attorney in San Francisco made the process easy. He listened to us, what we wanted and made great recommendations on how we can best plan for the future. He explained in simple language all the documents that we were signing. We would recommend him for estate planning needs.”
Is the MetLife Federal Legal Plan right for you?
The best time to find an attorney is before you need one. When you consider that 62% of working adults have been involved in a legal issue within the last three years³, it’s easy to see why having legal coverage is smart. Plus, the plan makes it simple to get legal help whenever you need it thanks to the large attorney network and extensive coverage. Get started today at MetLifeFederalBenefits.com.
