PCG Human Services™ can significantly improve your Supplemental Security Income/Social Security Disability Income (SSI/SSDI) allowance rates from the Social Security Administration (SSA) in the shortest possible time, with the least disruption to your organization while providing much needed services to your most vulnerable population of the low income disabled.
There are a number of advantages for state and county governments and individual recipients to implementing disability screening and application services for Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) and General Assistance (GA) caseloads. Among these:
Enrolling TANF recipients onto SSI allows agencies to remove these clients from their caseload and thus positively affect their Work Participant Rate (WPR) calculations. Failure to meet WPR goals can result in financial penalties, but states may avoid these WPR penalties if adults with disabilities can satisfy SSI eligibility requirements.
Founded by a former SSA district manager, PCG's SSAMSTM unit has an "insiders view" of the Social Security Disability process. We approach each project as a partner with SSA and state Disability Determination Services (DDS). We develop close and effective working relationships with these agencies in all of our contracts.
Our comprehensive, hands-on, and full representation package of services considers the unique needs of both our individual clientele and the state or county agency. Our services include
We actively pursue the maximum number of claims available, focusing intensively on achieving allowance at the initial level of adjudication. We provide full-service representation of our clients throughout the process, including actively seeking out the necessary medical, vocational, and functional documentation to build the strongest possible case for all of our claims. Our specialized representatives attend all face-to-face hearings with our claimants.
Currently, PCG has an initial application allowance rate of 76% and a 90% application allowance rate at the appeals level. PCG's success rate well exceeds SSA's national average of a 25.4% initial allowance rate and a 68.6% allowance rate at the appeals level.*
