It is hard to believe that the time has come again. We are not only in the middle of the holiday season, but it is also an open enrollment – at this point you can choose an insurance plan for the coming year.
If you are one of the millions of Americans with health insurance (covered by employer insurance or the Affordable Care Act), you are likely to read through the advantages and disadvantages of various insurance policies and plans.
And while you are dealing with benefits, do not overlook the new pillar of benefits – the legal benefits. In addition to medicine, dentistry, and eyesight, the legal advantage many Americans rely on is to take care of any legal problems that arise.
You read that right: legal.
Law is an advantage that you only think about when you actually need a lawyer. According to a 2015 Rocket Lawyer survey, 74% of employees will have a legal problem this year. You can't always predict when you'll get this ticket.
This is where Rocket Lawyer Legal Benefits comes in. Legal benefits include over 100,000 employees in companies such as Yelp, TuneIn, Pinterest and Stripe in the third year.
And unlike traditional insurance plans, where you have to wait for an open enrollment, statutory benefits can be introduced at any time throughout the year.
"Rocket Lawyer is a great asset to our employees as they have access to the lawyers and legal documents they need to meet their personal legal needs," said Deanna Grams, TuneIn's senior resources manager. "Employees can set up a foundation, create an advanced health care policy, or seek advice on other personal matters such as adoption or divorce."
With the legal advantages of Rocket Lawyer, employees have free access to thousands of documents, can ask a lawyer a question free of charge, and receive significantly reduced prices for lawyers.
Regardless of whether you are getting married, making a will, or want a lawyer to review your new lease, you can rest assured that you are covered for all legal issues.
