UAW-FCA-Ford-General Motors Legal Services Plan for NJ area Retirees

UAW-FCA-Ford-General Motors Legal Services Plan for NJ area Retirees
UAW-FCA-Ford-General Motors Legal Services Plan (the Plan) is a program established and operated for the sole purpose of providing personal legal services to eligible Participants for legal problems arising out of the laws in the United States or Canada. The new Legal Services Plan is a Taft-Hartley Plan created for the purpose of providing “office legal work” (no litigation) and referral services to certain eligible UAW members. It opened on January 25, 2017. Call (800) 482-7700 to request legal services.
      For Wills, Power of Attorney, and Estate matters in New Jersey, you can ask to be referred to 
2053 Woodbridge Ave.
Edison, NJ 08817
(Phone) 732-572-0500
  The Vercammen law office is near the Edison NJ Elks where UAW Local 595 Linden New Jersey (GM Assembly Plant) meets and where UAW Ford Metuchen Edison meet.

What is Covered Under My Legal Services Plan?
       The new Legal Services Plan that was negotiated in the 2015 UAW contracts is quite different from the ones that ended under the 2011 contracts. Although it does not provide litigation services, the new Legal Services Plan does provide “office services” (advice and document preparation) for a number of legal matters. Here are some matters that may benefit you under your new legal services plan:
·       Wills and Estates. Everyone needs to plan their estate and that usually means the preparation of a Will or Trust. Planning your estate carefully with the assistance of an attorney can give you peace of mind now and make things easier for your family after your death or incapacity.
·       Powers of Attorney and Deeds. An attorney can review your current documents, discuss if new ones are needed and prepare new ones if necessary. Make sure your family clearly understands your wishes. 

How do I open a case?
Contact the Legal Services Plan at (800) 482-7700. Eligibility will be verified and coverage will be explained. Please note that the Plan emphasizes communication by phone and email. 

What if my legal issue is not a covered office work matter ?
Even when a matter is not covered for Staff Attorney assistance, you may be entitled to a low cost referral to a private attorney. Your Legal Services Plan has entered into contracts with hundreds of private attorneys to represent eligible UAW members for a reduced rate. 

To open a case call 1-800-482-7700 to talk with one of our knowledgeable Intake Professionals.
