In February of 2021, we launched the Brown & Brown Absence Services Group brand. In choosing to identify ourselves as Brown & Brown Absence Services Group, we made the commitment to continue to deliver solutions and services to customers, clients, and teammates across the absence continuum. We have had an exciting first 11 months as Brown & Brown Absence Services Group and wanted to share just a few highlights:

Brown & Brown Absence Services Group was officially launched to the marketplace, as The Advocator Group and Social Security Advocates for the Disabled (SSAD) combined forces to deliver SSDI advocacy services under a new name and brand. Having collectively secured close to 200,000 awards for clients in their combined tenure, the strengths of each organization have helped us secure an additional 9,000+ awards since the rebrand, even during an unprecedented time of Social Security delays as a result of the pandemic.

With the introduction of Brown & Brown Absence came a new blog – Absensibility – designed to provide unique, timely content to make sense of the ever-evolving world of absence management, while offering guidance and support for individuals dealing with disabling conditions. In choosing to call our blog Absensibility, we sought to convey both an appreciation for and a response to the complex tactical and emotional aspects of an absence.
