I know a woman named Sue who applied for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits and was denied. She wasn’t alone. The Social Security Administration (SSA) denies about two-thirds of all initial SSDI applications.
You also probably know someone like her.
Sue represents thousands of SSDI applicants whose benefits are delayed or denied every year because of errors, incomplete information and missed deadlines. She may have forgotten to sign one of the many government forms. Perhaps she did not provide the medical evidence SSA needed to approve her application. Maybe the way she answered SSA’s questionnaires did not adequately show how her condition made it impossible for her to work. It could be that she transposed a digit in her Social Security number.
A denial at the initial SSDI application level means you are thrust into the massive disability backlog. More than 1.1 million people in America are languishing months and years waiting in line for an SSDI decision.
Like most of life’s challenges, it’s always best to get it right the first time. And Sue and all the others like her could have gotten her Social Security disability application right the first time and avoided delays and the bureaucratic headaches by unleashing the power of empower by Allsup. This super software is a dual online tool that takes more than 30 years of disability experience and puts it to work for you.
First, empower by Allsup helps you determine the likelihood of qualifying for SSDI. If it looks like you are a good candidate to meet the SSA’s rigid eligibility requirements, it will guide you through the application process with simple and clear step-by-step audio and written instructions.
When you apply for Social Security disability with empower by Allsup, you increase your chances of being approved at the initial application level. Overall, with Allsup, you have a 50 percent greater chance of being approved for disability benefits. Best yet, once you do qualify, the same technology will help you return to work if your health recovers to the point that you’re able to do so.
Don’t be like Sue. Do SSDI right the first time with empower by Allsup.
