ASEA Legal Services.

Are you taking advantage of your legal services benefit? If you are a State employee in the General Government Unit, you can consult an attorney to discuss most common legal questions, and we will pay for it—up to $1500 per year!

For example, have you been putting off making or updating your will?  Are you thinking of starting a trust fund for your children? Are you:

  • About to get married or divorced?
  • Buying or selling a home?
  • Dealing with a difficult landlord or neighbor?
  • Facing immigration, adoption or custody issues?

If you are a current State of Alaska employee in the General Government Unit and answered “yes” to any of these questions, we can help.

We will pay up to $200 per hour to the qualified attorney of your choice so that you can get the advice you need on covered legal matters like these. The deductible is just $25 per year, no co-payment, and your eligible dependents can use the benefit, too!

How can we provide this free service? Simple: It is a benefit you have earned as a State of Alaska employee represented by ASEA. The State pays us $4 per pay period on your behalf, and you can get up to $1500 for covered legal services each year. You owe it to yourself and your family to take advantage of this valuable benefit.

PLAN CHANGE EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2018
Get More for Less!
Effective January 1, 2017, the annual deductible was reduced to just $25 per member per plan year. This means you currently pay just $25 per Plan year (July 1–June 30) after which the Plan begins to pay benefits.

Effective January 1, 2018, there’s more good news!
The Plan will implement the following increases to your benefits:

  • The maximum allowable attorney charge will increase from $200 per
    hour to $225 per hour.
  • The maximum annual benefit will increase from $1,500 to $2,000 per
    eligible member per Plan year.

If you have already used your annual maximum benefit for this Plan year (July 1–June 30), you will be eligible for additional benefits, up to the increased $2,000 maximum, beginning January 1 through June 30, 2018.
