By the time that you are ready to file for a Social Security disability appeals hearing you have likely already had your initial application and reconsideration appeal denied. You may be discouraged and hesitant to continue with the Social Security disability application process. However, now is not the time to give up; your future may depend on you taking the next step.
Things You Should Know About Social Security Disability Hearings in Pennsylvania
Social Security disability hearings are different than the steps that you have already taken. For example, in a Social Security disability hearing you may:
- Appear in person, or via video, to testify. The administrative law judge may ask you questions about your case.
- Bring witnesses to testify at your hearing. Both the administrative law judge and you, or your Pennsylvania Social Security disability appeals attorney, will have the opportunity of ask questions of witnesses such as medical experts or vocation specialists.
Typically, Social Security disability hearings occur within about 75 miles of your home so that you have the opportunity to participate.
