Northeast Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation Hearing Office Closing

The Pennsylvania Bureau of Workers’ Compensation will be closing the Northeast Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation Hearing Office (currently located on Grant Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia). This is an unexpected decision, as this is one of the busiest hearing offices in the entire state. It was discussed in the past that only some of the hearings would be moved to the Center City Hearing office, but not that the office would be closing entirely.

 

This means that injured workers who reside in Northeast Philadelphia will have to travel to the hearing office in Center City Philadelphia (at 8th and Arch Streets).  No public announcement has been made yet by the Bureau.  The closing date is still to be determined, but it could be anytime in between October 1st and March.

 

If you would like to oppose the closing of the NE Hearing office, contact your State Representative Ed Neilson and City Councilman Bobby Henon to voice your concerns.
