Website Social Security Administration, Office of the General Counsel

Social Security’s General Counsel is Hiring!
Join us! The Social Security Administration’s Office of the General Counsel seeks talented attorneys throughout the U.S. for its Office of Program Litigation.
OGC Attorneys are eligible to work virtually with telework and remote work options.

WHY SSA: Social Security touches the lives of millions, providing vital services and a social safety net through disability, retirement, and survivor benefits. Our Office of the General Counsel (OGC) is a modern public service law office with a highly skilled, engaged, and diverse workforce. We strategically manage a large national workload through effective collaboration and coordination. Our attorneys handle meaningful and challenging legal work, while receiving a competitive salary and benefits.

WHY OGC’S OFFICE OF PROGRAM LITIGATION: OGC’s Office of Program Litigation (OPLit) promotes, advocates for, and protects SSA’s legal interests in federal court litigation involving Social Security benefit programs. OPLit attorneys partner with the Department of Justice and often serve as Special Assistant U.S. Attorneys. OPLit attorneys represent SSA in federal district and circuit court challenges to SSA policies and benefit determinations. Our work entails appellate-style litigation that requires a strong interest and aptitude for legal writing, oral advocacy, and public service.

OPLit attorneys have significant responsibility for their own caseloads. However, newly hired attorneys receive extensive training, mentoring, and other support. OGC offers a collegial environment in which both newer and experienced attorneys collaborate to share their expertise and develop their careers.

HOW TO APPLY: Your application must include a cover letter, resume, law school transcript, proof of active bar membership, list of professional references, and legal writing sample (max. 15 pages). Submit a complete application package to:
