Social Security Disability and SSI in PA

This page is devoted to Social Security Disability and SSI in Pennsylvania.  Applying for disability and how Social Security determines if you are disabled is the same in every state.  However, I will list the different offices were hearings are held in PA and overtime add information that is relevant to a Social Security Claim in PA. 

Below I have listed the Offices of Hearing and Appeals (OHA) now called Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR).  This is the location were hearings are held before Administrative Law Judges (ALJ).  If you are looking for the offices were you apply for SSDI or SSI in PA the towns that have Social Security Field Offices are listed at the bottom of each ODAR Office you can call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213.  An application for Social Security Disability in Pennsylvania can also be made on the Internet.  You can do this by visiting the Social Security Administration website.

One question everyone seems to have is "what are my chances of winning Social Security disability in Pennsylvania?" Every case is different but what I can provide is the winning percentages and denial percentages at application and reconsideration for PA. According to the state agency operations report prepared December 12, 2008, 36.7% of the cases at application win. At reconsideration 27.9% win. I know many of you have heard that no one wins when they first apply but as can be seen by the statistics this is not true. This is why it is important that you have your case as ready as you can when going through the application and reconsideration process. If you are unsure what you have to prove or how to go about proving your case for disability then you should consider getting a lawyer as soon as you can the process. Not all lawyers take claims at the initial application but you will find some that do. Feel free to click on the link for lawyers on this page and either I can help you or I will help you find a local lawyer near you for your claim.
