Free Will Preparation Offered through Hyatt Legal Services

Did you know that faculty and staff who enroll in Syracuse University’s MetLife Supplemental Life Insurance are eligible for complimentary will preparation services through Hyatt Legal Services? This service fully covers local attorney fees for preparing and updating a will when using a participating plan attorney. It’s another benefit offered through the University’s comprehensive benefits package and value-added services.

Will preparation provides participants in a MetLife Group Life Plan access to attorney services to complete the entire process of creating and updating a will.

Some highlights include:

  • full-service options to prepare and update wills, including complex wills and codicils, living wills and powers of attorney, for both you and your spouse/domestic partner;
  • Hyatt’s award-winning Client Service Center to assist in locating an attorney;
  • face-to-face and telephone consultations with one of Hyatt Legal Plans’ 14,000 participating plan attorneys; and
  • unlimited access to update a will for as long as you continue to participate in the MetLife Group Life Plan.

For details, call Hyatt Legal Plans at 1.800.821.6400. The Syracuse University group number is 104161.

Employees who choose to use an attorney who does not participate in the Hyatt Legal Plans’ network, may receive reimbursement for covered services according to a set fee schedule. The information is available for review through the Human Resources website:
