Under our current procedures, claimants may request administrative review of our determinations or decisions in the Social Security and Supplemental Security Income programs by filing a written request. We are increasing the options available to claimants for requesting administrative review to now also include oral requests made in person or by telephone. We plan to revise our instructional manuals and other documents to reflect these options. As we believe these options will benefit claimants by making it easier for them to do business with us, we are implementing this change immediately.Start Signature
