Nearly 30 years ago, Jim Allsup who was a long time field representative for the Social Security Administration opened the country’s first private Social Security disability claim service company. From those humble beginnings, the company has grown to secure full benefits for over 170,000 people. The company which maintains a website at allsup.com, currently has over 800 employees, which makes it one of the largest employers in Saint Clair County, Illinois. They have developed a successful method for advocating the needs of their customers and securing the benefits that they need and deserve. Because customers are treated as guests, they do not feel the normal intimidation that comes from working with a large governmental organization such as the SSA. Visitors to allsup.com are educated about the company and its 98 percent success rate at helping their customers receive the disability awards they are entitled to.
The site is designed to walk guests through the entire disability evaluation and selection of a Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) representative. There are a wide range of articles and resources that provide visitors with information and the steps required to apply for and secure benefits. Other articles are available for general guidance and advanced preparation for everyone wishing to be ready to deal with a disability. There are pages devoted to gently helping guests through all of the many phases of disability, from the discovery or realization, to the ultimate decision that they are no longer able to continue to work a traditional job, and the financial impact of each of these phases. Guests of allsup.com will also find a complete resource center, planning services, and telephone support.
