In March of this year, COVID caused the Social Security Administration to stop holding hearings. The Court then transitioned telephonic hearings in an effort to keep the process moving forward and to date has conducted over 120,000 hearings this way. Starting this fall there will be another change. The Social Security Administration will start allowing claimants seeking Social Security disability benefits to appear at their hearings by video. The Administration will conduct disability hearings through Microsoft Team platform, thereby allowing you to appear at hearings from your home computer or smart phone.
