My mother lives in PA and is having some medical issues that may leave her unable to work for much longer. Does PA have state, permanent disability benefits like we have in NJ? I'm trying to help her figure this stuff out and could use a clue as to where to look. Thanks for any responses.

No. Pennsylvania does NOT have state disability like NJ or California. The only disability is SSDI or SSI which are federal. There are a few agencies for help for specific disabilities but no money disbursed.

I need help from some one. I work in West Chester Pa and have had "Pa Disablity" come our of my pay check each week for the past 5 years I have worked in PA. while living in NJ. I live in New Jersey and resently had to take a a leave from work for 60 days due to an operation disabilying me to work for these 60 days. No one can tell me what the $1.39 coming out of my pay for "Pa Disabilty" was. Like NJ and California we have a diabilty insurance that would have covered me, does not Pa ? You would think that is what the deduction was? Can any one help me.

I too will have an operation that will put me out of work for about 2 to 3 months. I live in PA and would like to get state disability ins. One person says PA does not have this. Does anyone else know if this can be done.

There's plenty of attorneys advertising on TV to represent your case for Social Security and none of them ever mention fighting the state to get you anything. You should be able to get unemployment compensation.

There is no State Disability Benefit in Pa., as an earlier post indicated, only federal . There are many law offices that can assist you.
