FAQ: “Why did I receive a call from The Advocator Group?”

By Christina October 17, 2016

hiring-individualsWe recently received an inquiry from a prospective client about why we had called them, and so we wanted to take some time to explain our processes to be sure that anyone looking to apply for SSDI understands what The Advocator Group can do for them.

We may be calling because you reached out to us, or you were referred to us by a friend or family member. If you contact us on our website, leave us a voicemail, or send us an email inquiring about our services, we will be certain to call you back. Likewise, we may have been given your name and phone number by a trusted friend or family member who thought you may benefit from our services. If you’ve been referred in error, please always just let the Advocator representative know that right away and we will discontinue any efforts to reach you. During this initial call, we’ll ask you some additional questions to determine if we think you’re eligible for SSDI and we’ll go over what it means to work with The Advocator Group.

Many of the individuals we work with are currently collecting long-term disability benefits through a private disability provider, and most of them are unaware that applying for SSDI benefits is a standard part of their long term disability insurance policy. We have partnerships with long term disability providers across the country, and these insurance carriers recommend the services of The Advocator Group to help with the SSDI application process. If you are a disabled individual collecting long term disability benefits from one of our partners, then we may call you to see if you are interested in our assistance with the tedious and often lengthy process of applying for SSDI benefits.

We have spent many years carefully growing our Social Security disability advocacy business by fostering meaningful relationships and creating bonds of trust with long term disability carriers as well as SSDI applicants. It is important to us that everyone we speak to knows that our services are optional, and we are here as a support system to answer questions and help guide you and your family through a difficult time. Individuals battling illnesses and injuries that keep them from working already have enough stress in their lives—financial and otherwise. We seek to reduce that stress and ensure you can rest easy knowing that your SSDI application is in caring and experienced hands.

It is part of our vision to help as many people as possible, and so we take all inquiries seriously. We want to ensure that anyone struggling with health issues and financial strain caused by a disability understands all of their options and what assistance is available to them.
