Did you know?
The Social Security Administration conducts more than half a million appeals and hearings each year.
SSA hearings are held in front of administrative law judges (ALJ) within the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR). An appeal against an ALJ verdict will be heard by the Appeals Council. If the Appeals Council also rejects the application, the applicant has the option of filing a lawsuit against the SSA in federal court.
