The Social Security Administration is taking social distancing measures seriously, and making arrangements for hearings to be conducted via phone.
If you have an appointment for a hearing on your Social Security disability case, you may soon receive a call from the agency, rescheduling your appointment or scheduling a phone call instead. This is being done to ensure that Georgian Social Security disability beneficiaries do not have to make unnecessarily risky trips to a physical hearing when a hearing can be conducted on the telephone.
For the time being, administrative law judges are conducting telephone hearings, and this will continue at least until the offices are opened. If you are scheduled for a hearing, please note that the Social Security Administration will call from a private telephone number and not from the Social Security number.
