An open enrollment period is conducted in March and April of each year to provide eligible employees with an opportunity to enroll in the Plan. The 2016 open enrollment will be March 2 through April 30, 2016.

If you're already in the Plan you don't need to re-enroll, your coverage continues automatically. Members may cancel their membership at any time.
The Group Legal Services Insurance Plan is a voluntary, employee-paid plan that provides comprehensive legal coverage. It is designed to meet the most common personal legal needs of an individual and their family. Covered services include:
The Plan provides 100% paid-in-full coverage for an in-office consultation with an attorney. Once you have enrolled in the plan, you'll receive a directory of attorneys and a listing of areas of law in which they specialize. If you need an office consultation, you can call one of the more than 500 attorneys who belong to the Plan's California attorney network. When you use one of these qualified attorneys, the hourly fees the attorney charges will be paid-in-full by the plan for the covered services listed below. The Plan does not provide coverage for certain fees such as filing fees, reporters' fees, expert witness fees and other related expenses. Plan members also have the flexibility of using an attorney who is not part of the network. In this case, you would be reimbursed after filing a claim for legal fees paid up to a specified dollar limit. The Plan's covered services include, but are not limited to:
Each coverage is limited to one use per family, per plan year. For example, services can be received during the year for the defense of one misdemeanor, preparation of one will, filing of one divorce, etc.
The Group Legal Services Plan is a voluntary employee-paid plan and premiums are paid through monthly payroll deductions. The monthly premium is $10.19 for individual coverage and $17.74 for family coverage to cover you, your spouse, or registered domestic partner and any eligible dependent children.
