Should You Use Allsup or Advantage 2000 for Your Social Security Disability Claim?

Thursday, December 1, 2005

I wouldn’t! I think they both have major conflicts of interest. As the attached court decision Allsup v. Advantage 2000 shows here, I think Allsup and Advantage 2000 (A2K) Consultants are more interested in helping long term disability insurance companies, like UnumProvident, Cigna and MetLife, than they are in protecting the rights of Social Security Disability beneficiaries. This is the way companies like Allsup and Advantage 2000 work: 1) You file for long term disability (LTD) through your employer’s LTD carrier; 2) before the ink is dry on your LTD application, the LTD insurance company tries to solicit you to […]

Friday, November 11, 2005

It‚Äôs Veterans‚Äô Day. Let‚Äôs review some sad and disturbing Iraq War statistics: 15,568 veterans wounded in Iraq. 23,889 returning Iraq veterans have claimed VA benefits for PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and other mental conditions. 2,062 veterans dead. About 100 spectators at my local Veterans‚Äô Day parade this morning. Something is wrong. As a veteran myself, I take these numbers personally. It won‚Äôt be long before more and more returning Iraq veterans cross my office threshold to file for Social Security Disability. Whether its amputations, severe burns, blindness or PTSD, the Iraq veteran will face the same bureaucratic barriers all […]

Pataki's Workers' Compensation "Deform" Hurts Workers

Friday, November 4, 2005

After 12 years of never raising benefit levels for injured workers, Governor Pataki now wants to add insult to injury. In a transparent attempt to burnish his “right wing” credentials while launching his Presidential ambitions in Iowa, the Governor is proposing workers’ compensation reforms (more accurately labeled “deforms”) which will only put additional strain on the average working man and woman. The proposed reforms, if enacted, would take away benefits from the most seriously injured workers and force them onto the welfare rolls. Can you hear the “ching, ching” of your property taxes going up again? Thats the bottom line […]

Workers Compensation Top Ten Tips – Tip # 3

Wednesday, October 12, 2005

Don’t Talk to the Insurance Company and Don’t Sign Authorizations! Within a few days of learning of your work related accident, the insurance company claims adjusters will pounce on you. These people are NOT your friends. They are employed by the workers’ compensation insurance company to save money on your claim. While many claims adjusters may be good human beings trying to “do the right thing”, at the end of the day they are under intense pressure from the insurance carrier to minimize your workers compensation benefits and close your claim as soon as possible. Often times their initial contact […]
