- A. Hearings policy
A hearing is the next level of appeal if a claimant disagrees with a reconsideration (or a revised reconsideration) determination. An administrative law judge (ALJ) of the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR) conducts the hearing.
- The expedited appeals process is an alternative to the administrative review process whereby a claimant files a civil action after receiving a reconsideration determination. For more information about when a claimant may use the expedited appeals process, see GN 03107.100.
