Applying for Disability Benefits Does Not Have To Be So Scary

By Jim of Allsup

You’ve probably heard horror stories about how many people who apply for disability benefits are denied.

Yes, there are long lines of people waiting for a hearing on their Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims. Unfortunately, the stories are true. Today, more than a million people are waiting years in a line for a decision.

Applying for disability benefits can be a grueling process, and no one is more eager for a favorable decision than you.

But Allsup ranks a close second. That’s why we created empower by Allsup®. We have taken a stressful process, with complex forms and many rules—and streamlined it for you: our customers.

Following a few simple steps with our online tool can make your experience better. You can feel more empowered in the SSDI process. You can learn more about your likelihood of being eligible for benefits and have help on your side when you apply.

empower by Allsup is the result of our more than 30 years of SSDI experience—invested in a more timely way to help you apply.  We have helped more than 375,000 people receive their SSDI benefits.

Using empower When You Apply For Disability

You can:

  1. Receive a free assessment for likelihood of SSDI eligibility based on Social Security’s program requirements.
  2. Begin your SSDI application online with Allsup. It doesn’t require visiting, scheduling an appointment or calling the Social Security Administration.
  3. Learn more about all of the advantages of your SSDI benefits, including protection for your retirement income and eventual eligibility for Medicare.
  4. Understand your options for eventually returning to work—no you don’t have to give up on the idea of returning to work when you apply for disability.

You have paid for these benefits while working, so don’t pass them up—especially if you are thinking about returning to work after a long road to rehabilitation or recovery.

In addition, more than half of the people Allsup helps are approved for SSDI benefits at the initial application level. This means they never get mired in the SSDI hearing backlog.

The best part is, there’s no waiting in line. Start your SSDI application from your home, and the easy-to-understand information is readily available on your desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile device.
