Your job probably offers some voluntary benefits that you can choose to take advantage of, like dental, vision or life insurance packages. But more and more, employers are offering their workers extra benefits that give them access to increased services and provide peace of mind, like identity theft coverage, discounts on services like cell phones and car insurance, and long-term care insurance. Another voluntary benefit that’s becoming more and more common: a legal plan.
If you work in Texas, your employer can offer you a legal plan through Texas Legal, the state’s only nonprofit legal insurance protection plan. Through Texas Legal, you can access a network of lawyers throughout the state who are ready to provide you with help for a long list of legal issues. Need a will or a trust? It’s completely covered by our plan. Need a lawyer for a divorce or bankruptcy? Your plan can cover that or provide a discount. Got a traffic ticket? Get a lawyer to represent you for free.
Having a legal plan is like having a lawyer on retainer and can provide you with greater peace of mind that you’ll be able to handle whatever comes your way. And it can save you thousands of dollars on common legal issues.
Texas Legal is available to every Texan, but we love it when Texas employers offer it to their employees. Why? Well, first, it lets more people know about the valuable service we provide and helps us accomplish our mission: that more Texans would be able to afford legal help when they need it. And second, members through a group like an employer (or any other organization) are able to take advantage of our lower group rates and save even more money.
