As the world becomes increasingly digital, employers must quickly adapt to change to remain competitive. An excellent way for companies to attract new employees is to provide them with prepaid legal services. Such benefits help provide solutions to common legal challenges that anyone can face. Here are four reasons why employees want these types of benefits.
- Prepaid legal services give individuals access to expert advice without paying high hourly rates for lawyers’ time. With such a benefit in place, employees can get quality advice on important decisions, such as making simple wills, and learn how to better process a consumer protection claim.
- Large fees apply to anyone who needs a lawyer, and a specialist lawyer costs even more. A good group law plan offers discounts if it is necessary to refer a plan member to an attorney outside the system. Allowing the second attorney to perform prepaid legal services, such as making phone calls on behalf of the plan member, makes the benefit even more attractive.
- Employers want to convey to their employees that management cares a lot about their concerns. A group legal plan that provides access to superior legal services shows that an organization not only cares about the employees, but also about their families. Legal procedures, such as probate, can create problems for some families. Having a third party print the document reduces the amount of stress.
- Offering a legal group plan adds value to employee benefits. Many organizations do not offer this type of coverage, but those that do demonstrate to their employees that management will add value to employee benefits that go beyond standard coverage.
Nationwide Pre-Paid Legal Services has been providing benefits to organizations of all sizes for over 30 years. Our plan is one of the best in the industry.
The main reason is that we work with the best lawyers. Our nationwide network of attorneys assures plan members that there is an attorney in their community who will hear their concerns and address their concerns. Empathy is important to us. That is why we will recruit lawyers not only for their legal expertise but also their ability to listen to concerns and show genuine sympathy.
We work closely with our customers
Employers rarely like to work with benefits providers that are hundreds of miles away and not easily accessible. Countrywide has close relationships with all our customers regardless of size. We routinely contact customers to ensure that everything is going as it should.
Nationwide will not offer a boilerplate. We don’t because we understand that every organization has unique needs. We let the client work with us to create a benefit that all their employees can use. We explain each benefit option to management and point out the value of each.
Countrywide will then go back and ask the potential customer to select the options that will be included in their class action plan. We know that not all of our services will be chosen, which is good. Having a benefit that all employees will appreciate is much more important. Countrywide will provide streamlined administration and superior prepaid legal services for each Countrywide plan.
In addition, we provide services such as unlimited phone calls to the lawyer on a specific topic free of charge. We will also have the attorneys write letters on behalf of a plan member on letterhead. Each option has something that a person can use to make life easier. We encourage you to contact us if you have any questions about the nationwide plan. We answer your questions and sincerely hope that we can be of service to you and your employees.
