NEW LEGAL SERVICES PLAN REINSTATED EFFECTIVE 1/25/2017

The new Legal Services Plan is called the UAW-FCA-Ford-General Motors Legal Services Plan (“Plan”).  All active and retired UAW-represented employees and surviving spouses at FCA, Ford, and GM are eligible participates for the plan.

New cases can be opened by calling the toll-free number 1-800-482-7700.  The following services of “office work” will be provided: 

  • Wills and Trusts
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Deeds
  • Purchase or sale and other uncontested issues regarding residential real property
  • Residential Leases
  • Uncontested divorce
  • Contracts for goods or services
  • Birth or Marriage Certificates
  • Name Changes
  • Credit Reporting

Office work services 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 provides UAW members and retirees with full representation including attendance at hearings, for Social Security disability applications suspensions, and terminations.

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