APSA Blue and Red Members are automatically enrolled in a legal services plan: the Public Servant Legal Plan, through LegalShield. This plan is a legal services solution to meet the specific needs of government employees. This legal services plan covers APSA members and their spouse and dependents.
Through LegalShield, APSA members have 24/7 access to a variety of individualized legal services. Attorneys through LegalShield practice in every state, and every field of law. So, while APSA members might initially need legal services for a grievance hearing, to sort out workers comp pay, or because of an on-the-job injury, ASPA members and their dependents can also receive attorney assistance in drafting a will, reading a contract, or even in personal matters like car accidents or custody matters.
To access these services, log in to your member portal, and click "legal services".
