Receiving disability benefits after getting an award notice

Individuals filing for Social Security disability benefits in Pennsylvania typically go through a long and involved process. Therefore, when an award notice is received, it's understandably a welcome relief for most applicants. As for when benefits will actually start, payouts are often received sooner when individuals get an award notice at the initial disability application or reconsideration appeal level. It normally takes a bit longer to receive benefits when an award notice is granted at the hearing level.

Printing industry poses significant health hazards to workers

The digital age has not removed the need to print large quantities of packages and publications in Pennsylvania. Printing involves many large machines and chemicals, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration considers it a high-hazard industry. The agency's report for fiscal year 2018 that ended on Sept. 30, highlighted the top workplace safety violations for printing companies. Fines imposed on employers for any of these violations could easily cost $3,000 to $10,000.
