David Bueltemann,
Manager, Senior Claimant Representatives
Allsup, Inc.

Social Security Disability –

Download David’s Audio

David has helped more than 5,000 people with disabilities receive their entitled Social Security Disability Insurance. He has represented SSDI applicants in all 50 states, guiding them from the initial application through the administrative hearing level. During this time he has represented SSDI applicants at administrative law judge hearings in 29 states in 10 judicial circuits.

He joined Allsup Inc. in 1991 and served as a claims representative, appeals analyst, claims manager and senior representative before assuming his current position. Mr. Bueltemann’s current responsibilities includes supervising two groups of senior representatives.

The first group prepare and submit detailed legal briefs to administrative law judges (ALJ) in an effort to secure on-the-record SSDI award decisions. The second group of senior representatives appear in person, if necessary, to present an oral argument to the ALJ in a continued effort to secure a favorable SSDI decision.

Understanding and successfully building strong underlying support for the disabled person’s claim is a specialized skill that, when applied well, has a positive lifelong impact on Allsup clients and their financial situation. “The last thing that a seriously ill or injured claimant should have to face is a stressful courtroom appearance,” Mr. Bueltemann said. “My job is to ensure our representatives present enough evidence that an ALJ can award benefits as early in the process as possible, preferably without the need for a face-to-face hearing. This makes a very difficult life situation for the claimant a little easier to handle.”
