Whether you are buying a home or preparing a will or trust, or encounter an unexpected problem like a speeding ticket, you may find yourself needing legal services at some point.
Stanford’s partnership with MetLife Legal plans gives you access to more than 14,000 experienced attorneys in a nationwide network. There are no copays or deductibles, you simply pay your premiums with after-tax dollars through payroll deductions and you can receive unlimited legal access by phone or in-person.
Once you have enrolled in the plan, you select a network attorney in the specialized area of practice that you need, either online or by phone. Your spouse or domestic partner and dependent children are also covered under the plan. There is no limit during the year to how many times you can use the services of a network attorney for covered legal matters. If you need help finding an attorney, the MetLife Legal Plans Client Service Center can assist you.
Because you pay your insurance premiums with after-tax dollars through a payroll deduction, the enrollment window is limited to:
- New hires within the 31-day enrollment period
- Active employees during annual Open Enrollment only
Elections are made through the My Benefits portal.
This plan's premiums are $9.25 per pay period, after-tax, paid through payroll deductions.
