Group Website Enhancements

We have added two new components to the LegalShield page of our group websites: a digital cost savings estimator and a free legal forms library!

With our new LegalShield Savings Estimator, users can toggle on and off various common personal legal matters, from traffic tickets to Will preparation, to see the average cost. They then can compare the typical cost of hiring a lawyer with the low cost of a LegalShield benefit. All eligible benefit employees can now also access free legal forms directly from the group websites. These new digital tools will help employees see the monetary value their plan provides, and also provide those not enrolled access to free legal forms.

We also recently updated our group benefit websites with a new design and layout to provide a mobile-friendly experience, more detailed product information, and account sign-in access for existing plan participants.

We strive to provide the best in legal and identity theft and online privacy protection benefits and to stay on the cutting edge of technology advancements. We trust that our new group sites and recent enhancements will provide a better experience for your clients, their employees, and our plan participants.
