Applying for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits is an important financial decision for anyone who is out of work due to illness or injury. A sudden loss of income, paired with health challenges, keeping up with medical appointments, tracking medications, etc., all place a significant amount of stress on individuals applying for benefits. Furthermore, the SSDI application process can be long and complex – there are many deadlines and milestones to track, and this can be a lot to manage. Working with a professional representative like Brown & Brown Absence Services Group can alleviate the stress of applying for SSDI and help claimants focus more on what matters most – their health and family.  

We created this video to illustrate how working with a professional advocate like Brown & Brown can positively impact your life.  

When considering whether to apply on your own or utilize professional services, here are some key points to keep in mind (watch the video for more details and other benefits of working with a professional representative):

  • Do you understand the long-term benefits of receiving SSDI benefits?
