Benefits that promote an employee’s financial well-being should be the focus of every organization. The threat of Great Resignation departures is everywhere, and retention is critical. Security is important to many, and estate planning is part of the process.
There is paperwork associated with estate planning that people cannot ignore. A last will is necessary. Too many people think they just need to write their wishes on a piece of paper. It would be an easily disputed document. The final illness can cut big holes in an estate, and no one knows what an unconscious person wants to be done when it comes to final medical care. Three documents will prevent an accident of death: a simple will, a living will and medical powers of attorney. A nationwide prepaid legal services benefit offers all of these.
A lawyer is valuable
We strongly recommend that you do not use these as they quickly become outdated and may not be able to adequately record your requests. A lawyer who will prepare the paperwork is a more practical option.
Countrywide has a nationwide network of lawyers who will provide our prepaid legal services. In addition, every community with a nationwide client has one of our legal experts. These professionals are well versed in law and are ready to deal with common legal problems.
The nationwide solicitor will draw up a simple six page will. That’s enough for most people. The attorney will educate a team member on the legal plan about the last will and testament. The professional will advise on appointing an executor, and questions are always answered. A lawyer can also help draw up a will that specifies exactly what medical treatment you want and when it is time to turn off life support systems.
It may not sound like estate planning, but it is. The executor will not proceed until a person is deceased. Life support can keep an individual going long after recovery is possible. Whoever designates when life support is removed allows the estate process to begin and the beneficiaries receive what is intended for them. Medical powers of attorney are comparable to a living will executor. The person given that power will make the decisions that a person’s wishes are fulfilled.
Group legal plans will offer the preparation of wills, but we go one step further. We will send reminders to anyone who has used our services to update their will when necessary. You can also consider that reminder as part of estate planning. The final estate will thus make it possible for the living beneficiaries whom the deceased wants to share in the estate. The reminder ensures that the will is never out of date.
Work with a customer
Countrywide wants group law members to benefit from all our services. We make sure that happens by asking a potential client to help us work out their prepaid benefits for legal services. We explain all our services to decision makers, and we thoroughly answer all questions. Next, the prospective customer selects the services that will be included in the class action plan. Nationwide will provide the administration and membership services.
Employee surveys have pointed to financial well-being as a concern. Countrywide provides prepaid legal services that enable employees to take care of their personal financial affairs. Additionally, what helps in estate planning will benefit the loved ones left behind. Offering the help we mentioned above shows employees that an organization cares about the person and that person’s family. Employees appreciate our services regardless of their job description.
