NSO is in partnering with LegalShield to offer a pre-paid legal service, as well as an identity theft program to members. For one flat monthly fee, members can access legal advice without the worry of high hourly costs. Online enrollment is available at http://www.nso2015LIDS.org/.
The cost of each program depends on your state, but prices for LegalShield protection range from as low as $15.95 a month for single coverage, to $19.95 for a family plan. IDShield, the identity theft program, is $9.99 a month for a single person and $19.95 for family coverage.
With LegalShield, you can pick up the phone and speak with a veteran attorney on such matters as preparing a will, dealing with a traffic violation or accident, or handling family matters like a divorce or adoption. The IDShield plan protects you against identity theft and helps you restore your identity and credit rating, along with providing privacy and security monitoring.
Currently, online enrollment is not available in Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Dakota, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and Wisconsin. However, members in those states can contact our LegalShield representative, Tonnie Cobb, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 402-614-6312 for a paper application. LegalShield is working on obtaining the special certification needed to offer online enrollment in those states.
The LegalShield service is not available in Alaska, however the IDShield identity theft program is.
This is an NSO member benefit to affiliates across the country. It’s really a small price to pay for peace of mind.
