How do I file short term disability in PA?

PA supports the Social Security Administration’s benefits program. Social Security disability benefits may apply if you:

  • Are age 18 or older.
  • Are not currently receiving benefits on your own Social Security record.
  • Are unable to work because of a medical condition that is expected to last at least 12 months or result in death; and
  • Have not been denied for disability in the last 60 days.
