An Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) serves as impartial judge at regulatory and benefits-granting agencies. ALJs are independent impartial triers of fact in formal proceedings requiring a decision on the record after the opportunity for a hearing. The Federal Government employs ALJs in a number of agencies throughout the United States. There are approximately 1,700 federal ALJs nationwide and about 1,500 of them hear Social Security Disability cases.
