What happens at a hearing?

The hearing is an opportunity for the claimant to provide their testimony about their impairments and how those impairments affect their activities of daily living and work activity. It is also a chance for the Administrative Law Judge to make a decision on the claimant’s credibility and attempt to get more information about any of the information in the record. The Administrative Law Judge will usually consult a vocational expert in determining whether the claimant’s specific limitations will make full time work impossible.
