A legal plan offers you a simple way to protect yourself against life’s legal issues. Similar to other benefits, employees enroll through their employer or association to gain access to a nationwide network of attorneys and legal resources to help them address their needs. It’s like having an attorney on retainer – without the expensive legal fees.
Whether your goals include things like buying a home, protecting your assets or mapping out a financial strategy, our trusted advisors provide valuable legal guidance and resources so you can take proactive steps to plan for the future. Plus, to help you get started, the ARAG® Legal Center features a wide array of online educational resources and legal tools to help you learn about everyday legal issues, understand your rights and identify your options.
Maybe you’re thinking about getting a Will done. Or you want to address a situation like a property dispute or debt collection before it winds up in court. Now you can move forward to help protect what matters most to you with the legal guidance of one of our trusted advisors.
With an ARAG Legal Plan, you’ll receive a wealth of valuable and useful information – plus more protection than with any other legal plan provider. We’re here to help you gain the confidence and direction you need to take control of your situation.
