At Cunningham Law Group, we are committed to assisting you with your case with respect and dignity. In order to make your SSI Disability Appeal in Halifax as convenient as possible, we offer a video conference center in our Halifax law office. This allows you to come to our office when you need to speak with a Social Security administrative law judge, instead of traveling out of your way to their office.
If you’re confused or intimidated by what a video disability hearing entails, don’t worry. We’ll be there to help you through the process.
What is a Video Hearing?
The Social Security Administration (SSA) is one of the only government agencies to have embraced technology in order to streamline their processes. A video disability hearing is similar to an in-person hearing, but it is conducted via a video platform rather than in person in front of a judge. At this hearing, the judge will determine whether or not you should be approved for SSDI benefits. Although it sounds difficult, this is what we do for a living.
How Can I Prepare for a Video Hearing?
When preparing for your video hearing, you should take the same steps as you would in an in-person hearing. Although you’re not in person with the judge, your appearance and overall demeanor will affect how your case is judged. It’s important to show you care about your case by appearing well-groomed and in decent clothing. Also, it’s important to understand the information included in your disability claim. At the end of the day, no one understands your condition and how it pertains to your inability to work quite like you do.
What Are the Advantages to a Video Hearing?
Aside from the benefits of having these video hearings at a location closer to your home than the courtroom, there are other benefits. Often, opting to have a video hearing can get you a sooner hearing date than if you choose to use a traditional in-person setting. In the case of SSI Disability Appeal in Halifax, beginning the process as soon as possible can often be beneficial to further navigating your case.
Are There Any Disadvantages to a Video Hearing?
The only potential disadvantage to a video hearing would be if you feel uncomfortable with the technology used. The video hearing option involves an updated, technologically savvy way of carrying out a disability hearing, and we understand that not everyone will be comfortable with it. However, as far as your case goes, opting for the video hearing does not affect your ability to successfully conduct an SSI Disability Appeal in Halifax.
