Unequalled benefits. Unbeatable price.
We invite you to look at the competition for law enforcement legal defense plans. Do they name their attorneys? Do they detail the plan coverage? Are there limitations on attorney fees and will you have to pay additional costs? You'll discover that there's no comparison. The MPPOA LDF plan puts everything on the table. We are regulated and carefully examined every year by auditors and the Department of Labor. You get this access, quality and peace of mind for just over $8 a month. Group rates are even lower.
