The majority of Australians have health insurance, car insurance and home insurance. We understand that in exchange for a monthly or annual premium, we are covered when we need medical procedures, get into a car accident or have to deal with hail damage to our roof. We pay insurance premiums before these events happen, because we understand it's important to protect our business, property, ourselves, our families - and our bank accounts.

Legal Expense Insurance (LEI) is relatively new to the Australian market but in Europe 1 in 3 individuals hold some form of LEI cover.

Taking out cover for events before they happen is normal in all aspects of our day to day lives. So why, when it comes to defending or pursuing our legal rights, do we hesitate? ARAG Services Australia believe every business and individual has the right to access legal support regardless of fault. That’s why we offer protection for the defence and pursuit of legal matters covered under our policies.

There are four LEI products that are offered:

Business LEI
Private LEI
Residential Landlord LEI
Private Web LEI
 
 

Additional Benefits

All policy holders have access to:

Document Centre - People can create their own bespoke legal documents online to address common legal issues without making a claim.
Document Review - depending on your cover this can be 3 per annum.
Legal Information Helpline - available for all policy holders to access general legal information up to 30 minutes depending on your cover.

Policy holders can easily access our claims team via our online claims process.

Another benefit is that LEI can provide a great addition to an employee benefits program. Many businesses struggle to offer tangible benefits to their employees outside of salary discussions. Employees are looking for more than a discount on their gym membership or a fruit box in the lunch room. ARAG Australia offer a range of employee Legal Insurance for individuals and their families. With LEI as a benefit employees can access an initial free consultation for general advice, plus additional legal services are provided.

As we become more aware of our legal rights it’s important to have choice and freedom to exercise yours ARAG Australia are committed to providing access to justice for all, options like legal expense insurance will be used more and more as a solution.
