Likewise, you can find out more about Utah SSD benefits here. If you need information about California SSD and SSI benefits go here. We also have Nevada benefits information here. Our goal is to give you as much information as you need to help you during the application process.
Colorado disability information can be found on this website too. We will travel to represent you at your Social Security hearing. Additionally, no matter where you live our attorney fee is the same. If we don’t win your case, then you don’t owe an attorney fee. You only pay if an attorney fee if we win your benefits.
When you contact our office, know that even though our main office is in Salt Lake City, Utah, we will represent you where you live. Likewise, if the SSA denies your case, then you can appeal. We will help you do that.
If you don’t win on appeal, then you can have a hearing with a Judge. The SSA will schedule your hearing at an office for hearings near the place you live. Therefore, we will travel to your home city to best represent you in your benefit case. There are also options for phone hearings. Likewise, sometimes the SSA holds video hearings.

THERE IS A SOCIAL SECURITY HEARING OFFICE IN A CITY NEAR YOU
If you don’t see the city where you live on this list, don’t worry. You are still living in a city where we serve clients. Even small cities have a Social Security office nearby. Hearings can also be held by phone or video. We will be able to help you.
The Social Security Administration has hearing offices in many locations and states. These offices are listed at the Social Security website. Additionally, the SSA provides video hearings for people in more remote locations. If that isn’t an option, then you can have a phone hearing instead. It is your constitutional right to have a hearing with a Judge.
Additionally, you can receive reimbursement from the SSA for travel expenses. For example, if you have to travel more than 75 miles to a hearing site, then the SSA will send you a check to cover travel expenses. For example, the check will pay for gas. Or, it will pay you a certain amount of money for every mile that you travel by car. However, if you hire us to represent you, you do not need to pay for our travel costs.
HOW TO CONTACT YOUR LOCAL HEARING OFFICES
If you have already have had a hearing and you need to be paid for your travel expenses, contact your local hearing office. They will give you the paperwork that you need to fill out and submit. If you need to contact your local hearing office for any reason, here is a list of offices in your state:
- California Hearing Offices
- Colorado Hearing Offices
- Idaho Hearing Offices
- Nevada Hearing Offices
- Utah Hearing Offices
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY HEARING
Your hearing will be held at the Office of Hearing Operations (“OHO”). You will receive notice of the time and place of the hearing about 30 days prior to the hearing. The judge will ask you questions. You are the main witness. The point of the hearing is for you to testify about your mental and physical symptoms and how they keep you from working.
The hearing is private. The court room is closed to the public. The only people who can come into your hearing, besides you, are the Judge and your attorney. After that, the judge may call a Medical Expert (“ME”), and a Vocational Expert (“VE”). There is also a court reporter recording the hearing. If you need more information about what to expect at your hearing, then read here.
Most of the time, you will be the only witness at your court hearing. We do not usually call witnesses, like family members, to testify. We don’t do this because the ALJ will not give weight to the testimony of a family member. The reason for this is your family has an interest in you winning benefits.
If we do call a family member to testify, it is usually because you have a mental condition that makes is hard for you to testify. Mental disorders like schizophrenia or dementia can cause memory issues that make it difficult to testify. Likewise, if you have a seizure disorder, sometimes it is hard to testify about your seizures, because usually you can’t remember them. Likewise, you may not know what is happening when you are having a seizure. However, you probably remember how you feel after a seizure. This would be an example of when family testimony is useful and helps win your SSA hearing.
