Hearing Before an Administrative Law Judge

§ 408.1040. When can you request a hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ)?

(a) General rules. For purposes of this part, we use the same rules on hearings before an administrative law judge (ALJ) that we use in the title XVI program (see §§ 416.1429-1416.1440 of this chapter), except as noted in paragraph (b) of this section.

(b) Exceptions. In § 416.1433, the words “one of our offices” in paragraph (b) are deemed to read “any of the offices listed in § 408.1009(b)” and the reference in the last sentence of § 416.1433(c) to “§ 416.1411” is deemed to read “§ 408.1011.”
