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:
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
"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 representation, including 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.
UAW Benefit Rep., Cherylene Hough,
will be at the Hall the first Monday of
each month from 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM.
She will come the second Monday,
when there is a holiday. (July 4, etc.)
Check the Courier Times or Emails.
She will be here to help with any
insurance or other Benefit's problem
and questions you may have. If you are
unable to make it to the Hall, call

enough to justify it, I will do all I can to
get a Benefit Rep. for you at least once
