Legal Service Benefits

If legal counsel is required to help resolve your issue, CSDA may forward your request to CSDA’s contracted attorney. CSDA offers each agency member one hour of free legal advice each year. To utilize this benefit, please read the disclaimer below before submitting the Member Helpline form.

Contact Member Services with any questions at 877.924.2732.
