Your Social Security Disability Benefits Hearing
You must be prompt and on time to your Social Security Disability hearing if you do not want to risk the chances of your claim being dismissed by the judge, who has the authority to do so. It is recommended that you arrive at least 60 minutes early, so that any chances of being late or prevented from attending are nullified. The hearing is informal so there will be no government attorney arguing against you, but the hearing will be tape recorded. If you wish to have a relative or friend present during the hearing you must obtain permission form the judge, but for the most part the hearing will be closed to the public. Remember to be respectful and polite to the judge and everyone present.
Answer any questions asked of you by the judge to the best of your ability. Administrative Law Judges hold hundreds of hearing each year, and they are trained to distinguish whether or not someone is telling the truth. To win your claim, hire an experienced Social Security Disability Attorney to get you the Social Security Disability help you deserve.
