Social Welfare Appeals Office - SW 56

Print page

The Appeals Officer may decide to hold an oral hearing to obtain more details about your case or to clarify points which are at issue in relation to the decision which is under appeal.
You may wish to request an oral hearing because you wish to elaborate on some aspect of the evidence or you consider that you can better make your case if you appear in person to present your evidence.
Appeals Officers make every effort to keep oral hearings as informal as possible. Should an oral hearing be required, the hearing will be held at a location as near as possible to where you live.
