LegalShield, one of North America’s leading providers of affordable legal plans and the IDShield identity theft solution for individuals, families and small businesses, announced today that it has grown its membership base to exceed 1,700,600 members.
In November, LegalShield continued its pace of adding new memberships to the base and achieved a 12th straight month of record high active members. In addition to the record high in memberships, the company recruited nearly 41,000 new associates this year – a 22 percent increase from 2016.
With the continued increases in production, this is also LegalShield’s eighth consecutive month of membership churn at two percent or below. The momentum the company has built is displaying positive leading indicators that foreshadow a strong year end.
“November is historically a challenging month. However, we refused to believe the past dictates our future and we created the results we expected to achieve,” said CEO Jeff Bell. “We are extremely proud of maintaining record low membership churn rates, and look forward to continued success in 2018.”
