Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

As stated earlier, the benefits of the Legal Services Fund are divided into three categories: General Matters, Civil Matters, and Criminal Matters. This section is concerned with benefits provided by the Fund that relate to Criminal Matters, for example, "violations," "misdemeanors" and "felonies." A Fund member's spouse and eligible dependents are eligible for most Criminal Matters Benefits, but only when the member elects to have the Fund provide such benefits. See the Administrative Fund section of this book for the definition of eligible dependents.The spouse and eligible dependents of an eligible part-time employee are excluded from coverage for Criminal Matters benefits.
