Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits provide vital assistance to millions of American workers and their families each year. Still, at Brown & Brown Absence Services Group, we know that navigating the SSDI process can be challenging – filling out applications, responding to questionnaires, staying in contact with the Social Security Administration and more. This is why we have dedicated ourselves to helping as many people as possible through our services. We have helped more than 200,000  individuals obtain SSDI benefits over the past twenty years and remain committed to helping even more.

Brown & Brown Absence: A History
Our organization was founded in 2002 with a deep understanding of the challenges individuals face when applying for and obtaining SSDI benefits. We recognize the stress of managing medical appointments, private insurance processes and disruptions to daily life while navigating an unfamiliar process. At Brown & Brown Absence, we are dedicated to alleviating these burdens by providing comprehensive support, including education and guidance, ensuring our clients feel heard and understood throughout the process.

While we always strive for a fast and favorable award on each claim, we understand that this isn’t always the outcome. In such cases, we continue to stand by our clients, providing support from the initial application filing all the way to an appeal at the Appeals Council, if necessary.

Over the past twenty years, we have grown our organization, but our commitment to providing excellent customer service and helping our clients in as many ways as possible has remained steadfast. We value each and every one of our clients and are dedicated to providing the best possible service to them.

Working with Brown & Brown Absence
When you work with Brown & Brown Absence Services Group, our compassionate and seasoned Client Advocates, with their experience and support, are here to help guide you through the SSDI process. We provide comprehensive assistance to help make you feel confident and secure in our guidance. Among the assistance you can look forward to if you choose to partner with Brown & Brown is:

Claims Management.
Applying for Social Security Disability can be a long and complicated process. Our team of experienced Client Advocates is here to help you every step of the way.

We manage claim milestones and keep track of deadlines to keep your claim on track and within the strict guidelines set by Social Security. When Social Security requests information, we will respond to inquiries on your behalf and work with you directly to ensure any questionnaires are completed and appointments are attended.

Medical Records Submission.
If you are required to attend a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ), we will prepare your case file with all pertinent information on your behalf.

The ALJ reviewing your case will have a comprehensive overview of your situation and be able to make an informed decision. This includes presenting medical evidence on your disabling condition(s). We will contact your doctors to obtain updated medical records and our Client Advocates will submit them on your behalf.

Representation at Hearings.
We have an extensive nationwide team of experienced disability attorneys.

Most of our clients do not have to attend a hearing in front of an ALJ, but if your case reaches the hearing level, we will help you prepare and work with an experienced attorney in your area. Since the attorneys we work with are most often local to your region, they are familiar with the preferred procedures of the local hearing offices.

Not eligible for SSDI benefits? We can still help!
If seeking SSDI benefits is not the right choice for you, either because you are ineligible or simply not interested, Brown & Brown can still assist you in other ways.

Medicare Advocacy: A team of Licensed Insurance Agents at Aevo Insurance Services, a subsidiary of Brown & Brown Absence Services Group, are available for Medicare enrollment support and guidance. You become eligible for Medicare coverage upon turning 65 or after receiving SSDI cash benefits for two years. Aevo helps you cut through the Medicare advertising noise and provides guidance focusing on you and your unique financial and medical needs.

Not eligible for Medicare? We can point you toward other healthcare resources that we trust, including:

HealthSherpa: An online platform that makes it easier to shop for and enroll in Affordable Care Insurance (ACA) and to apply for Medicaid. Many people turn to ACA insurance when they experience a qualifying life event, such as losing coverage through a spouse or employer. HealthSherpa is free to use and is the largest enrollment platform for ACA health coverage, with over nine million enrollments to date.  Explore affordable health insurance options with HealthSherpa.

NeedyMeds: A national nonprofit that connects people to healthcare savings and educational programs free of charge. The NeedyMeds drug discount card is accepted at more than 65,000 pharmacies nationwide, and our parent company, Brown & Brown Absence Services Group, has collaborated with NeedyMeds to get prescription savings cards to as many people as possible. You can use the NeedyMeds drug discount card immediately – no fees, paperwork or enrollments are required. Your card number is not unique, so you can share it with family and friends.

Together with Brown & Brown
Whether you have already applied, received a denial or are just considering filing, contact Brown & Brown Absence Services Group today to see if our services are right for you. You will speak with an experienced intake specialist who will ask you some questions to get to know you and determine if you qualify for benefits. They will be able to answer any questions you may have about the process and move things forward if it is the right fit.

The decision to file for benefits is personal and contingent upon each individual’s unique circumstances, so moving forward is ultimately a decision that lies with you. We are here to provide guidance and support every step of the way and look forward to seeing if our services are right for you!
