How Will I Be Notified?
How will I be notified of a hearing?
You will receive a hearing notice in the mail at least 10 days in advance of the hearing. You will also receive a packet of papers that the Administrative Law Judge will use at the hearing. It is very important that you have these documents with you when the Administrative Law Judge calls you for the hearing. If you did not receive the hearing packet, call the hearing office as soon as possible. They may be able to send you a new hearing packet or send it electronically.
