Secret Judge Policy
Social Security recently announced a policy that they will not let you know which judge is assigned to your case prior to the day of the hearing. A hearing before a judge is the third stage in the process, after you have been denied on the initial claim and on reconsideration. All judges are different, so it helps to know the judge!! That is why you should have a local attorney. And because of my experience, I can usually tell who the judge will be, even though they will not tell you.
