Prepaid Legal Benefits

Prepaid Legal Benefits:  Saving You Money

We know every dollar matters.  Its why we fight for benefits that make a difference in member’s lives. Prepaid legal benefits are there to help our members use many common legal services at no cost and others at a sizable discount.

Prepaid legal benefits are negotiated by your union with contributing employers, and are overseen by a Board of Trustees made up of two appointed UFCW Local 1459 members and two appointed members from contributing employers.
