The Pre-Paid Legal Fund provides eligible Union members with free legal services. This past Spring, the Union won pre-paid legal benefits for members at casinos and hotels covered by the Greater Regional Industry Wide Agreement (GRIWA) outside New York City in our renewal of the GRIWA. Members covered by the GRIWA can access the Union’s Pre-Paid Legal Fund starting January 1, 2024.

To find out if you are covered, contact the Pre-Paid Legal Fund at (212) 586-6400, ext. 4258, after January 1, 2024.

Members can use the Pre-Paid Legal Fund for matters including the following:

  • Landlord / Tenant matters
  • Divorce
  • Child custody
  • Wills
  • Credit issues
  • Home purchases
  • Immigration
  • And more!

To access these services, contact the Pre-Paid Legal Fund at (212) 586-6400, ext. 4258


The Pre-Paid Legal Fund has recently expanded their benefits. Parents and legal guardians can now access free legal assistance for:

  • Administrative hearings to challenge a public-school district’s failure to provide a free and appropriate public education for children with disabilities
  • Cases when a public-school child is subject to disciplinary exclusion for ten or more school days

Sonia Diaz, a Room Attendant at the Row NYC, used the Pre-Paid Legal Fund last April to close on an apartment for herself and her husband.

“I am so grateful to the Union always, especially now as I was able to realize my American dream to purchase a forever home for my family," shared Sonia.
