Advice on any legal matter
The following are some of the situations that may require legal advice and assistance:
If a member is arrested after hours within a metropolitan area, we’ll get a lawyer to you. We can also reimburse you for legal fees on condition you have a justified and valid defence and provided all the conditions of the policy have been met.
If you are in an emergency or traumatic event such as an accident or an incident that results in a death, you will have access to our after-hours emergency legal advisor. This service is for emergency situations only, and normal day-to-day requirements for legal advice (for example labour or civil matters) will be serviced during office hours only.
Debt affects many of us, but that doesn't mean it can't be conquered. With Legal&Tax, a professional debt counsellor will help you restructure your debts, ensuring your repayments are manageable and affordable, so you can enjoy a debt-free life.
