In March of 2020, the Social Security Administration closed its offices for public service and in-person hearings due to COVID-19.
In Person Hearings for SSDI Cases
During that time, all hearings pertaining to Social Security Disability were conducted by either telephone or video conferencing. For many social security disability cases, telephone or video conferencing became an efficient way to conduct hearings; however, there became a backlog of cases that either could not meet the requirements of telephone or video conferencing or elected to wait until the Social Security Administration started conducting in-person hearings.
In the July of 2022, the Social Security Administration announced they would resume in-person hearings on an as-needed basis. For those that had been waiting patiently for in-person hearings, this was good news.
