The UFCW Unions & Employers Legal Assistance Fund is a valuable pre-paid legal services benefit and is available to eligible participants in Georgia and Alabama. Plan benefits are comprehensive; they cover legal services related to certain criminal and consumer actions (such as bankruptcy, garnishment, etc.) domestic relations matters (such as divorce, child support, adoption, etc.), creation of a will and estate administration issues, as well as many other types of services. There are some exclusions that are detailed in the Summary Plan Description (“SPD”). You should refer to the full text of the SPD for information on all covered services and exclusions. Also, if your employer contributes a certain amount to the Fund, you have the option to obtain reimbursement up to a certain limited amount if you should use the services of an attorney other than an in-house attorney. You should contact the UFCW Unions and Employers Legal Assistance Fund Office to confirm you are eligible for this benefit before incurring legal expenses. If you are told you are not eligible and you have further questions, you should contact the LLC at (770) 997-9910 to discuss.
