The National Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Legal Defense Plan is designed to provide payment of legal defense costs for covered duty-related administrative disciplinary action by your law enforcement employer, and civil or criminal lawsuits, including grand jury proceedings.
How do I file a claim?
All potential claims must be reported to Sedgwick Claims Management services. Please submit your claim using the Claim Reporting Form. Sedgwick will review the claim, make a coverage determination and communicate with you and your chosen attorney.
Do I get to choose my own attorney?
Yes. If you choose a Plan Attorney, there is no deductible and no limit on attorney fees. If you choose a Non-Plan Attorney, there is a $250 deductible and a limit on attorney fees. A Non-Plan Attorney can become a Plan Attorney by simply enrolling and meeting the Plan’s requirements at the time he or she begins to represent you. Please contact Sedgwick Claims Management Services, Inc. for an Attorney Enrollment Packet.
