Subject: Court Remand – Appeals Council Decision
This transmittal amends section I-4-7-1 of the Hearings, Appeals and Litigation Law (HALLEX) manual to update instructions relating to requests for appearance.
HALLEX I-4-7-1 – In subsection B, we added a NOTE, explaining that when the claimant or representative requests an appearance to present oral argument, the Appeals Council will determine whether to grant or deny the request following the guidelines set forth in HALLEX I-3-8-12. We renumbered former NOTE 2 and NOTE 3 as NOTE 3 and NOTE 4, respectively. We also made editorial changes throughout.
