SSA Hearing Options Available During COVID-19

In March 2020, we closed Social Security hearing offices to the public for in-person service due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This closure protects the population we serve—older Americans and people with underlying medical conditions—and our employees during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Our hearing offices will be closed to the public for the foreseeable future, and we will not be offering in-person service in our hearing offices. Instead, we are providing two flexible, safe and secure hearing options. In order to have a hearing and receive an answer on your claim, we strongly encourage you to accept either a telephone hearing or—coming soon—an online video hearing.

We will update this website to let you know when we begin online video hearings. Please bookmark this page and check back.
