Things to Consider

When deciding whether to enroll in legal services, be sure to consider the following:

Cost per paycheck. If you expect to need legal services, the cost of legal services coverage could be less than if you paid an in-network attorney directly. You’ll be able to see the cost per paycheck when you enroll through Benefits In-Site during Annual Enrollment.

Network. The MetLife Legal Plans national attorney network has more than 13,000 attorneys across all U.S. states and territories.

Your personal situation. Think about your expected legal needs. For example, do you plan to purchase, sell or refinance a home? Or do you need help preparing a will or trust? If you answered yes to either question, having legal services coverage could give you peace of mind.
