Legal Insurance Plan

Benefits for Life Voluntary Insurance Program: Be safe, be protected, be prepared 

Legal Plan

A legal insurance plan for many common personal legal issues. In today's world, no matter where you are in your life, starting your first job, retiring, or somewhere in between, you are almost certain to experience life events that have potential legal ramifications.

Legal Plan LogoWith a legal plan from Hyatt Legal Plans, a MetLife company, you have the professional legal help you need to protect yourself and your loved ones from legal difficulties.

You have the option to participate in the MetLaw or the MetLaw with FraudScout plan from Hyatt Legal Plans. Both plans give you and eligible family members affordable protection for legal expenses and access to experienced attorneys. Both plans provide a full year of legal coverage for a price that many attorneys charge for just one hour of service*. Your coverage will be renewed automatically each year and may only be cancelled during a Benefits for Life open enrollment period. Please watch the Legal Plan Insurance video for more information on this benefit.

When using Hyatt Legal Plans' Network Attorneys, attorney fees are 100% paid-in-full for most covered matters. You can also choose any out-of-network attorney you'd like and receive reimbursements up to the scheduled maximums.
