Our Founder and CEO

It’s impossible to describe our CEO’s achievements without touching on the history of our business. Jim’s dedication to True Help® led him to create a better way to apply for Social Security Disability Insurance. Watch this video series to learn more about both.

Our Story

Our philosophy is simple: People with disabilities deserve a real chance to reclaim their lives.

How It All Started

After working for the Social Security Administration for several years, Jim Allsup realized that people needed more attention and support than they were able to get from the SSA.

That experience inspired him to create a new kind of company, focused on helping people with chronic health conditions access the life-changing benefits they need.

Nearly 40 years later, what started as a one-man company has grown into an organization of hundreds of professionals headquartered in Belleville, Illinois. Allsup and its affiliates are innovators of specialized services and technologies that help meet the financial and healthcare needs of Americans with disabilities.
