Actually, 1,073 people to be exact. Disability Answers, The Advocator Group’s free mobile app, has reached its first major milestone. Since its debut in September, the app has been downloaded by 1,073 users.
Disability Answers helps disabled individuals determine whether or not they should consider applying for Social Security Disability Insurance or Medicare. Based on the answers to a few short questions about the user’s medical and work history, the app is able to advise them on whether or not they’re a good candidate to receive benefits.
This is exciting news for us, because it lets us know that we’ve been able to help 1,073 disabled people make a decision that can be overwhelming to make alone. For more on this, take a look at the press release we issued announcing this important milestone.
The Advocator Group’s Disability Answers App Surpasses 1,000th Download
Leading advocacy organization announces its iPhone® and Android® app has reached a new milestone
WAKEFIELD, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, The Advocator Group announced that its free mobile app, Disability Answers™, has reached its first milestone, with over 1,000 downloads to date. The new app helps disabled Americans better understand the complexities of, and whether they may qualify for, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Medicare. Available for both iPhone® and Android® devices, the app can be accessed after a quick download and simple on-screen setup.
“We are proud to announce that we hit our first milestone of over 1,000 downloads, and did so in just a few months,” says Chris Gallagher, Vice President, Business Development at The Advocator Group. “The success of the Disability Answers app highlights the importance of developing user-friendly and effective resources for disabled Americans.”
Originally released in September, Disability Answers has been downloaded by hundreds of mobile users on each platform. Disability Answers provides disabled Americans and their loved ones with clear and concise answers to the many questions that arise during a difficult time in their lives. Reviews and feedback for the app have been stellar among users.
The most dynamic feature of the app, the My Answers section, allows users to understand their specific likelihood of approval for benefits by simply answering basic questions about their age, diagnosis, and work history. Then, by comparing their profile and situation to that of actual claimants, the app will tell users if they are a likely candidate for SSDI, and if they should contact an advocate to begin exploring the application process.
To download Disability Answers in the Apple iTunes App Store or the Android Market, search “Disability Answers” or “The Advocator Group.” Also, learn more about SSDI and Medicare benefits on The Advocator Group’s blog, an online resource for disabled individuals and their families.
