    Group Legal

    The basics.

    Enroll in Group Legal so you have access to attorneys for advice and services at a discount throughout the year.

    How it works.

    How it works.

    Group Legal is administered by MetLife Legal Plans. Covered legal services within MetLife Legal Plan’s network are provided with no additional attorney fees; however, you will pay for third-party expenses, such as filing fees and court costs. You can also choose to use a non-plan attorney and get reimbursed for covered services according to a set fee schedule.

    When you enroll in Group Legal, you get access to a nationwide network of experienced attorneys for legal advice and services to help with legal matters such as:

    • Eligible court appearances (non-criminal)
    • Document review and preparation
    • Debt collection defense
    • Wills
    • Family matters, including guardianship or conservatorship (contested or uncontested)
    • Real estate matters, including home equity loans, refinancing, and sale or purchase of homes
    • Traffic ticket defense (non-DUI)
    • Identity management services

    For other legal matters not covered by the plan, you get four hours of attorney time and services per year for consultation, document review and more. You are responsible for attorney fees beyond the four hours.

    Digital Estate Planning.
