  • Charitable scams
  • Relief fund fraud
  • Stolen personal documents
  • Casualty and theft losses

LegalShield provides protection against legal and IDT natural disaster matters. For more information on LegalShield and IDShield, please Contact Cheryl.

Legal and IDT Benefits Help Support DEI

Many employers have found that Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) practices are more easily incorporated when introducing Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). ERGs can also be powerful mediums to educate employees on their available benefits. Legal and identity theft protection benefits are a perfect accompaniment to a company’s DEI practices and benefit suite.

LegalShield and IDShield provide coverage for many DEI-related issues, including:

  • Elder Law Matter
  • Civil and Social Discrimination
  • Bullying Protection
  • Post-Nuptial / Domestic Partnership Agreements
  • Adoption
  • Social Media, Online Privacy and Reputation Management
  • Identity Restoration

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) are at the heart of our mission to protect and empower people with the tools and services needed to live a just and secure life.

For more information, please contact Cheryl.

Plan on LegalShield this Open Enrollment Season

Today’s employees want more control over their benefits packages, with ongoing communication and education to make informed decisions that cater to their unique needs and those of their families. Unfortunately, in a recent LegalShield survey, 52% of employees said they do not feel they receive enough communication regarding their benefits.

As part of LegalShield’s implementation process, LegalShield can provide a pre- and post-enrollment marketing and communication strategy to boost plan participation and overall utilization of the benefit(s). With LegalShield’s fast implementation process and compatibility with over 100 enrollment platforms, including Employee Navigator, PlanSource, BenefitFirst and Ease, new groups can be implemented in as little as 2-3 weeks.

Just like our implementation process, both our LegalShield and IDShield benefits provide a seamless user experience by providing direct access to professionals and convenient access via a web portal and mobile app.
