SSA Hearing Options Available

Your hearing with an administrative law judge can take place by online video through Microsoft Teams, by telephone, by video in one of our hearing locations, or in-person at one of our hearing sites. This website provides details about what to expect with each hearing option, and you can let us know how you would like to participate in your hearing after we receive your request for hearing.

After you submit your Request for Hearing, we will send a notice package acknowledging that we have received your request for a hearing. This package will include information on video-teleconference (VTC) hearings, which are video hearings that occur in our hearing site. We will also send a separate notice providing information about telephone and online video hearings. These notices are currently separate while we continue to streamline our hearing option offerings. Please bookmark this page as we will continue to provide updates here about hearing options.
