Q. What Witnesses or Evidence Will I Need at the Hearing?

A. Medical reports from your treating doctors play a crucial role in most hearing issues, particularly when it comes to medical questions. It’s important to note that doctors are not required to attend Social Security hearings. The Administrative Law Judges (ALJs) will not base their decisions on the number of witnesses present. To prepare for the hearing, consult with your lawyer about the necessary witnesses and the questions you may be asked.
