Freedom Disability Looking to Hire Candidates with Disabilities. Freedom Disability is hiring in 2010. Starting in the second quarter, the national Social Security advocacy group will be seeking to hire qualified candidates to help people with disabilities file, and win, disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA).
According to the SSA, more than 2.6 million disability claims were filed in 2008. As the baby boomer population ages, Freedom Disability is projecting higher demands for their advocacy services.
"We need to grow simply because there are more people nationally who need help filing disability claims," said Jon Mayhew, president of Freedom Disability. "I know that during the current recession, many companies continue to lay off workers, or are holding back on hiring. We're not. The economic climate notwithstanding, we are creating more jobs so that we can do more of what we are all so passionate about doing here at Freedom Disability - helping people with disabilities get the benefits they deserve."
Freedom Disability will be looking for people with work backgrounds in social services and health care to train as Advocates so that the company can help more people with disabilities file first-time applications or appeal denied claims.
"Advocates will be our biggest hire," said Freedom Disability's Human Resources Generalist, Mary George. "We'll also need to fill in-house customer-service and support-staff positions, and remote advocate positions in other parts of the country."
Freedom Disability is also reaching out to the disability community to offer jobs.
"We are very interested in hiring people with disabilities," said George. "We will make the necessary accommodations for a person with a disability who has the skills we require. As we grow, there will be more jobs to fill and more opportunities for people with disabilities to join our team."
The hiring plan is projected to increase the work force at Freedom Disability up to 50 percent by the end of 2010.
"It's exciting to watch a company grow like this," said George. "But it's more than that. Every person already working here genuinely cares about helping people in need. We will be looking for qualified candidates who have it within them to do their very best to help people win disability benefits."
Freedom Disability will start advertising to fill Advocate positions and customer-service and support-staff positions in the spring. E-mail inquiries about these positions only, to hr (at) freedomdisability.com.
