The Office of Hearings Operations, also referred to as OHO, is the Social Security office that is responsible for the management of Social Security Disability hearings.
When a claim is denied at the reconsideration level and an appeal is filed, the claim is then transferred to an OHO office.
The area of Pennsylvania that you live in determines which Pennsylvania OHO office processes your disability hearing.
In this blog post, we will discuss the Seven Fields Office of Hearings and Operations.
The Seven Fields OHO serves the Social Security field offices in Ambridge, Beaver Falls, Butler, Cranberry, Erie, Hermitage, New Castle, and New Kensington.
The field offices are located in a number of counties in Western Pennsylvania including Allegheny, Armstrong, Butler, Clarion, Crawford, Erie, Forest, Lawrence, Mercer, Venango, and Westmoreland.
The Seven Fields Office of Hearings Operations (Seven Fields OHO) is located at 300 Seven Fields Blvd, Seven Fields, PA 16046. Their phone number is (855) 278-4199.

You are not required to have an attorney for your Social Security Disability claim; however, this is not the best approach. Statistics clearly show that claimants who are represented by a disability lawyer win their benefits far more often than those who try to handle matters on their own. This is true at every stage
Why Representation Helps

Having representation helps win SSD (SSDI) and SSI claims because the regulations that govern the Social Security Administration’s disability programs are so complex. Even many experienced lawyers are unaware of regulations if they do not focus on this area of law.
There are also extensive medical records to be collected, questions to answer, and deadlines to meet. People often find it overwhelming to handle the process alone.
