Allsup Provides Social Security Disability Screenings At Lupus Walk This Saturday At Carondelet Park

Online screening and application tool can help individuals avoid Missouri disability backlog of nearly 32,000

Belleville, Ill. — May 2, 2017 — Allsup, a nationwide provider of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) representation, will provide disability screenings and information on its online screening tool, empower by Allsup®, at the Lupus Foundation of America’s St. Louis Walk to End Lupus Now! The event is scheduled for Saturday, May 6, from 3 to 6:30 p.m. at Carondelet Park.

Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can lead to significant tissue damage, organ failure, disability and death according to the Lupus Foundation of America (LFA). Many individuals with lupus are unable to continue working just a few years after diagnosis. If they are unable to work for 12 months or more, they may be eligible for the SSDI benefits they paid for during their working years. It is a lifeline for many former workers, providing a monthly income and access to Medicare.

However, most people who apply for SSDI benefits are denied and appeals can take several months or years. Nationally, more than 1.1 million people with severe disabilities are waiting an average 578 days for a disability hearing. In Missouri, 31,850 people are waiting an average 566 days.

Having expert SSDI representation can help individuals with lupus get approved sooner at the initial and appeal levels. empower by Allsup is an online tool that helps people with severe disabilities determine their likelihood of being approved for SSDI. It also offers return-to-work assistance for people whose health has recovered to the point they’re able to return to the workforce.
