Prepaid Legal Services and ID Theft Protection Added to Benefit Options

The University of Arkansas System has added two new voluntary benefit programs starting this month. These are available to all benefit-eligible employees, meaning those who are eligible to participate in the University’s  medical insurance plan.

These benefits will not be payroll-deducted, but will be available on an individual pay basis at a large group discounted rate. These products and companies were selected via a thorough Request for Proposal process, allowing the University to select the most complete and competitive offerings in the market.

ID Watchdog was selected to offer complete identity theft protection. No one can prevent identity theft, which is why it’s important to find it fast and resolve any issues before it impacts you and your family’s life. Click HERE for details.

LegalShield was selected to offer prepaid legal services. As a LegalShield member you would have access to attorneys who can provide advice or assistance on a variety of personal legal issues. Click HERE for details.

Employees can enroll at any time of the year.  The website links above include details about the plans, costs and enrollment instructions.

If you have questions about benefits, please contact Human Resources at (501) 686-5650 or email askhr@uams.edu.
