You have the option to participate in the Legal Plan or the Legal Plan plus FraudScout from MetLife 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 MetLife 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.
