The legal plan gives you access to basic, personal legal help. The plan provides online, over-the-phone or in-person access and covers specific legal services. These services are provided through ARAG at an annual cost roughly equal to the average attorney rate of one or two hours at an attorney’s office.
The legal insurance plan helps mainly with routine preventive or defensive matters and should cover most legal needs. More information about the legal plan is available here.
The ARAG Legal Plan is open for enrollment this year.
