Legal Expertise at Your Service

Pen Air FCU Offers Prepaid Legal Services for Alabama and Florida Residents through Staples, Ellis, & Associates, P.A.

While most people know and recognize the need for insurance to cover their homes, cars, and health, some may not realize the benefit of having a legal services plan. Membership in a legal services plan is similar to insurance. While you may never need the services of an attorney as frequently as you would a doctor, when issues arise the need is no less urgent.

For just $144 per year ($12/month), Staples, Ellis, & Associates offer peace-of-mind and empowerment to Pen Air FCU members when they need it most by providing service for members seeking assistance with wills and trusts, as well as lawsuits and other litigation.

More information regarding prepaid legal services can be found on our website or by visiting any Pen Air FCU branch location.
