“As a licensed attorney, seasoned claims

advocate and former University of Chicago benefits manager, I offer a rare combination of skills, experience and demeanor to assure the best outcomes.”

—Susan H. Loeb, JD, Your Benefits Advocate

Over the years, Your Benefits Advocate has secured more than three million dollars worth of benefits for clients and has saved them thousands of dollars in medical bills.

As a lawyer, Susan Loeb has the skills and credentials to level the playing field with insurance companies, doctors, hospitals and employers, yet her fees are affordable.

As a claims advocate, she can manage the paperwork, navigate the best way to resolve billing disputes and coverage denials, and give advice about how to best safeguard coverage when you experience a significant life event such as a job loss or retirement.

As someone who really enjoys helping people, she is a compassionate advocate who gives peace of mind to her clients. Her Success Stories are formidable.

From 1981 until 1992, Susan practiced law in Chicago, Illinois representing employers in all aspects of employee benefits. She left private practice in 1993 to raise her family while working as a benefits counselor and manager at the University of Chicago for more than 8,000 employees and retirees. In 2006, she founded YBA so she could apply her knowledge and experience to helping people access, manage and secure the benefits they are entitled to.

Other lawyers, insurance brokers and professionals contact YBA when one of their clients has a problem with insurance and benefits that is too technical, complex or time-consuming for them to handle in their practice. Similarly, YBA works with litigators, Social Security Disability experts and geriatric case managers when the matter requires outside expertise.

Susan frequently donates her time to cancer survivor organizations such as the BMT Infonet (bone marrow/blood transplants), the American Brain Tumor Association and the Living in the Future (LIFE) program by educating individuals about what to do when insurance denies a claim and how they can safeguard medical coverage and other benefits when they experience a significant life event. In 2007, she appeared on the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams as part of a series on the difficulty of navigating the world of health insurance.

Susan received her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin in 1976 and her Juris Doctor in 1981 from IIT-Chicago-Kent College of Law. She is a member of the Chicago Bar Association, the Alliance for Claims Assistance Professionals and the Illinois Continuity of Care Group. She also sits on the Advisory Board of the Chicago Center for Jewish Genetic Disorders.
