Pennsylvania Social Security Disability -

Pennsylvania Social Security disability benefits are paid only to workers who have long-term impairments that preclude any gainful work, regardless of whether the disability arose on or off the job. By law, the benefits are paid only to workers who are unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of a medically determinable physical or mental impairment that is expected to last at least a year or result in death. The injury or condition has to be severe enough that the worker is not only unable to do his or her previous work but is also unable to do any other type of substantial gainful work. Social Security disability benefits begin after a 5-month waiting period.

The amount of benefits in Pennsylvania and Nationwide that Social Security paid in wage-replacement benefits to disabled workers and their dependents in 2002 was nearly twice the amount of cash benefits paid under workers’ compensation—$65.6 billion compared with $29.2 billion. Employer and employee each pay 5.3 percent of wages for Social Security’s Old-Age and Survivors Insurance and 0.9 percent for Disability Insurance. Thus, the total paid for Disability Insurance is 1.8 percent of taxable wages.

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Social Security Disability

In December 2003, about 7.6 million beneficiaries (workers and dependents) received Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. Of those beneficiaries, about 1.3 million, or about 17 percent, had some connection to workers’ compensation or public disability benefits.

This connection includes those who:

  • received workers’ compensation or public disability benefits,
  • had received workers’ compensation or public disability benefits in the past,
  • received a lump-sum settlement in lieu of periodic benefits, or
  • had claims pending for workers’ compensation or public disability benefits. Of those with a connection to workers’ compensation or public disability benefits,
  • about 1 million were disabled workers, and about 240,000 were dependents;
  • about three-fourths were connected to workers’ compensation and one-fourth to other public disability benefits
  • 53 percent of disabled workers had a pending connection or claim, and 47 percent had a prior connection.

    The percentage of Social Security Disability Insurance beneficiaries with a connection to workers’ compensation or public disability benefits varies by state of residence, in part because workers’ compensation programs vary, as do rules for coverage of public employees under Social Security and alternative public disability benefits.

    How to handle your Social Security Disability Claim
