You left active policing – who will protect you in the next stage of life?
A frequent question Board Members of the Utah State FOP hear from retiring officers is “What happens to my legal coverage when I retire?” Until now, these Board Members haven’t had a great answer, but have worked diligently toward resolving this deficiency. Thus, the Utah State FOP is excited to announce that the same elite legal defense team that protected you during your career is on now your side through retirement by way of the Utah FOP Retirees’ Legal Plan.
The benefits available under the Plan were developed by retired law enforcement officers, FOR retired law enforcement officers. What’s more, the Utah State FOP has once again teamed up with Nelson & Jones, PLLC to provide the exclusive legal benefits available under the Plan. In short, the same attorneys who protect thousands of officers across Utah, can now protect you in your post-policing life.
When you turned in your badge, they didn’t ask you to return your mindset, training, or dedication toward protecting your community.

The Utah State FOP has teamed up with the same experienced legal team who respond to on-duty critical incidents, to protect the retired law enforcement community in Utah. To this end, the Utah FOP Retirees’ Legal Plan was created to offer legal coverage very similar to what you had while an active officer, with some important differences. As a retired officer, you no longer have a law enforcement agency standing between you and potential plaintiffs in a lawsuit. We are here, in part, to bridge the gap on legal defense fees.
