Introducing METLAW
Are you concerned about identity theft and how to protect yourself?  Have you been putting off writing a will for one excuse after another?  Next  month, you will have the opportunity to enroll in METLAW, a legal services benefit offered by Hyatt Legal Plans, a MetLife company, and be able to access legal services for these and other issues.  

Hyatt Legal Plans is the largest provider of group legal plans in the U.S. and has been in the business since 1981. Our plan attorneys must meet stringent criteria before joining our network and are regularly reviewed to ensure they continue to meet plan standards.

For a low bi-weekly deduction of $7.87, the plan covers representation for many personal legal services for you and your eligible dependents (eligible dependents are your spouse/domestic partners, and unmarried dependent children).  You may receive office consultations and/or telephone advice for virtually any personal legal matter.  This gives you the opportunity to discuss with an attorney legal issues that are not specifically excluded matters, even if the matter is not fully covered.  

In the coming weeks, you will be receiving additional information on this valuable benefit. Your enrollment opportunity will begin Sept. 12, 2011 and end Sept. 30, 2011. Coverage will become effective Nov. 1, 2011.
