A word about legal information on this site.
Although we have provided information on many different topics on this site,
many are far too complicated or too state-specific to discuss here. If you
do not find what you are looking for, you may wish to call our Customer
Service Center for a referral to a Plan Attorney for a free consultation.
Many legal issues require a Plan Attorney versed in state and local laws. We
encourage members to discuss any matter with a Plan Attorney after reviewing

The Law in Your Life - A collection of articles on common legal issues
organized by the area of your life affected by the legal issue: Family,
Credit, Property, Contracts, Healthcare, Taxes, Estate Planning, Consumer
Rights, Small Claims and General Topics.
Elder Care - The need for help with issues facing adult children responsible
for caring for their aging parents had grown tremendously in recent years.
We have gathered all the information related to this topic from other
libraries on this site into one central area for ease of access.
Small Claims and Consumer Help - This section contains short articles that
walk you through small claims matters and information on some specific types
of consumer problems like warranties, small claims issues like neighbor
disputes and credit issues like collections.
Family Health Legal Library - This library was developed to educate members
on legal issues that many people do not think about until a medical
emergency occurs and it is too late to prevent complicated legal
proceedings. Here you will find detailed discussions about Wills, Trusts,
and various health related documents like Living Wills and Durable Powers of
Attorney. By reading the discussions in this library you can make sense of
all the different options available- documents many people have heard of,
but few understand the differences. You will have a better understanding of
what documents you and your family should have in place.
Domestic Violence - This is a growing problem and we feel that information
is the best weapon, and must be easy to find. Information in other sections
of this site is intended only for members and their dependants, however,
please share the information here with anyone close to you, who you think
might be struggling with this problem.
Legal Document Library - This is the place to go for simple legal documents
that many people need in everyday situations. These documents can be printed
and used if they are applicable to your situation. Please be sure to follow
the instructions carefully and consult with a Plan Attorney if you are
unsure about how to complete a document.
Anatomy of a Case - Most people do not know what to expect once they are
involved in a lawsuit. This section details the steps involved in a typical
case and explains many of the questions that clients typically have, but may
be hesitant to ask their attorney.
Areas of Interest - Information on the most frequently asked about legal
issues is provided here. These topics will change periodically as new areas
of law become more "popular."
