Are you taking advantage of your legal services benefit? If you are a State employee in the General Government Unit, you can consult an attorney to discuss most common legal questions, and we will pay for it—up to $1500 per year!
For example, have you been putting off making or updating your will? Are you thinking of starting a trust fund for your children? Are you:
- About to get married or divorced?
- Buying or selling a home?
- Dealing with a difficult landlord or neighbor?
- Facing immigration, adoption or custody issues?
If you are a current State of Alaska employee in the General Government Unit and answered “yes” to any of these questions, we can help.
We will pay up to $200 per hour to the qualified attorney of your choice so that you can get the advice you need on covered legal matters like these. The deductible is just $100 per year, no co-payment, and your spouse or domestic partner can use the benefit, too!
How can we provide this free service? Simple: It is a benefit you have earned as a State of Alaska employee represented by ASEA. The State pays us $4 per pay period on your behalf, and you can get up to $1500 for covered legal services each year. You owe it to yourself and your family to take advantage of this valuable benefit.
