Should I go to my hearing in person?

by | May 31, 2024 | SSD - Disability Hearings |

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Social Security Administration began allowing remote hearing options. They have opted to continue with these options for clients. You always have the option to choose to appear in person for your hearing, and we will appear in person with you if you choose this route. Many of our clients would rather appear via telephone or Microsoft Teams on video from the comfort of their own home. Benefits to appearing via telephone or Microsoft Teams are not having to drive or find a ride to a hearing office which may be far from your home. If you have questions about what option would be best for you, it is best to call the office and ask to speak to our staff or an attorney to walk you through your options. Also be sure to keep in mind the hearings occur at Social Security Administration Offices of Hearings Operations, not at your local SSA office. So, the hearing location may be quite a distance from your home.
