Does Law for All Legal Aid Society represent me in court?
The correct position is that Law for All is a legal aid society and not a law firm. Our mandate is to pay the legal bill only. We give access to professional legal services for our members.
If I continue to pay my premiums without any claim, What eventually happens?
Your premiums will entitle you to free service when you reach the age of 65.
If I die,What happens to my dependants?
Dependants will continue to enjoy legal cover for six months without contributions after the death of a member. Thereafter they can either continue with subscriptions or the policy then lapses. We encourage all our members to advise their families of the existence of their policy so that they will get assistance on the estate in the event of the death of the member.
This also applies to cases of job loss, incapacitation or retrenchment. This benefit is available to those who would have contributed for at least twelve months.
What happens if I exhaust my cover limit?
If you exhaust your cover limit you have to pay the shortfall. However you have an option of upgrading your policy three months in advance in order to remain covered.
Does Law for All legal Aid cover me for cases that occurred before I became a member?
No. Law for All does not cover pending cases. BUT if you join us, we will refer you to our lawyers and you foot your own bill
