NEW  LEGAL SERVICES PLAN

UAW-FCA-Ford-General Motors Legal Services Plan


Effective Wednesday, January 25, 2017 the Plan will begin taking new cases for UAW-represented employees at FCA, Ford and General Motors and their surviving spouses.  


A new case can be opened by calling this toll-free number:

                                              (800) 482-7700


The Plan will offer an "office work" benefit, which will provide services for the following types of legal matters:


Wills and trusts  

Powers of attorney

Purchase or sale of residential real property  (uncontested)

Uncontested family matters

Contracts for goods or services

Birth or marriage certificates

Powers of attorney

Deeds

​Credit reporting

Residential leases

Name changes


"Office work" services will include advice, document preparation, document review, factual and legal research and correspondence.  No representation will be provided by the Plan in court or in any litigation situation.


In addition to "office work" services, the Plan does provide UAW members and retirees with full representationincluding attendance at hearings, for ​Social Security disability applications, suspensions and terminations.


For many legal matters not covered under the new Plan, or that require court activity, the Plan intake staff can still process a participant's inquires.  Such matters will be referred to outside private cooperating attorneys, who will provide legal services to Plan participants at a reduced legal rate.
