Thousands of professionals work each day to support the educational, resource and medical needs of people with disabilities, and Allsup joins groups nationwide in observing National Disability Professionals Week, which is June 10-14, 2013. Allsup provides a range of services to people with disabilities including Social Security Disability Insurance(SSDI) representation, veterans disability appeals and Medicare plan selection services.

The week is recognized by many of the nearly 65,000 professionals working for the federal Social Security Administration, which administers the SSDI program. Thousands more work at state offices nationwide to administer disability programs, including disability examiners working in state Disability Determinations Services (DDS) units. Other professionals provide disability advocacy and resource assistance through local, state and national organizations, both public and private.

“Disability professionals work tirelessly behind the scenes for people who often are very vulnerable,” said David Bueltemann, manager of senior claimant representatives at Allsup, which has served people with disabilities for nearly 30 years. “It is rewarding work and makes a huge difference in peoples’ lives. This week offers the chance for people in this sector to take time and celebrate the good that they do.”

SSA workers helped process more than 3.2 million initial applications for Social Security disability benefits in fiscal year 2012. An SSA priority is to employ military veterans and veterans who experienced disability during active duty service. Last year, nearly 37 percent of all SSA new hires were veterans. Fifteen percent of total hires were veterans with disabilities.

Members of the National Association of Disability Examiners have celebrated this week for more than 15 years. Formed in 1963, the NADE is the leading voice of people working in disability adjudication. That includes those who decide disability claims, as well as physicians, administrators and support staff. Numerous state chapters of NADE mark Disability Professionals Week each year with special events.

Allsup employees are among professionals nationwide who help people with disabilities. They include the company’s senior claimant representatives who average 21 years experience in the SSDI program. Founded in 1984 by CEO Jim Allsup, Allsup experts have helped more than 200,000 people receive their SSDI and Medicare benefits.

“Allsup disability specialists have many hundreds of years combined experience helping people with severe disabilities regain some stability in their lives by giving them access to financial and health resources,” Bueltemann said. “In nearly 30 years, we have expanded our emphasis on providing True Help® to people with disabilities. We will continue to do so.”
