Is anyone back to in-person administrative hearings? I recently did an in-person VA disability hearing (VLJ was by video but my client and I went to the regional office for the hearing). Seems like SSA is slowly moving toward in-person again. I’m told July will have in-person OHO hearings locally.

I am experiencing exactly the same thing as you. And that is what I have heard about Social Security disability hearings. I was told the in person hearings are being conducted by the chief ALJ in each office at this point. I am still getting notices for telephone hearings set in September. I would like to continue to do hearings by telephone, in light of the fluctuating numbers of Covid cases, my vulnerable clients, and because it saves time.

My partner of 5 years ended our relationship last night. I’m shattered and feel absolutely sick, and I know the healing isn’t going to be easy. We were on the verge of an engagement and I was ready to spend the rest of my life with him.

I don’t know how to approach work during this time. I think I can get by, but I’m definitely not 100%. Should I talk to my boss about it? My team is close-knit and comfortable around each other, but I don’t know if it’s “appropriate.” What would you do?

Good evening all. I’m joining AAI later this month and I need to check how much travel is happening.

TIA.
