MetLife Legal

The MetLife Group Legal Services Plan provides employees and their families with access to a network of participating attorneys who can provide a wide range of professional legal services. The monthly premium is $15 and includes a variety of resources available to members. Plan attorneys have met stringent selection criteria, and have an average of 16+ years of legal experience. Assistance includes:

  • Consultation on the telephone or in person
  • Document preparation
  • Representation in many frequently necessary legal matters
  • Plan attorneys are generally available to meet with you on weekdays, evenings, and Saturdays. 
  • There are limitations to this plan. 
  • Certain areas are not covered by the plan, and there is no obligation to provide legal service benefits in any matter deemed frivolous, harassing, or in contravention of the rules of ethical conduct by governing attorneys

Non-plan Attorney

Employees have the flexibility to use a non-plan attorney and be reimbursed for the covered services according to a set fee schedule. If employees use a non-plan attorney, they are responsible for paying the difference between the plan payment and the out-of-network attorney’s charge for the service.

Leaving the University

The MetLife Legal benefit is portable. If you leave the University, you must contact MetLife Legal Services within 30 days of your last day of employment. MetLife Legal will give you details on plan continuation. You can also view the MetLife Legal Portability Procedures for more information on the portability process.
