This list will grow as questions come in.
CAN I JOIN THE LEGAL DEFENSE FUND AS AN INDIVIDUAL?
No. The Legal Defense Fund is a group Plan.
MUST ALL MEMBERS BE ENROLLED IN THE SAME PLAN?
Yes. However, there may be unusual situations in which the Plan would allow members in different job assignments to enroll in separate Plans.
WHAT HAPPENS IF A PARTICIPANT LATERALS FROM ONE DEPARTMENT TO ANOTHER?
If the participant goes from one department to another, both of which are represented by associations enrolled in the Legal Defense Fund, there is no break in coverage. The level of coverage is consistent with the Plan chosen by the new association.
