Re: ssdi hearing

Hopefully you will get a favorable decision. If not, then a VE not being present is good cause for an appeal. (I recall reading about a case in which a VE was not present, and this was highlighted, sorry don't remember the details or context of the case, but in the event of an unfavorable decision it may be a good basis for a remand.) It seems unusual that you had no VE or ME present. Perhaps the judge is already leaning in your favor and found it wouldn't be necessary? If a judge was leaning towards unfavorable, it seems some jobs would have to be listed, so no VE seems like a good sign. However, it really is no indication of what will happen. Make sure in your Dr's visits, detail your conditions and specifically how it stops you from working. This is very important. Hope everything works out for you, please keep us posted

Sometimes, based on what people report and some disability sites. However, some people say they got a hearing and no VE or ME was present, so it must depend

At my hearing there was a vocational expert, but no medical expert. Having the vocational expert didn't help me, though ... he said there was no work I could do, and the judged argued with him, saying I could work.

Are ME's, when present, normally MD's?

Re: ssdi hearing

A medical expert could be a physician or perhaps an occupational therapist or physical therapist if that is what is specifically needed. Not every hearing involves VE and/or ME. It all depends on what the judge/SS feels needs to be addressed. Sometimes the Judge may present findings from a VE or ME and then that can be addressed during the hearing. If we think the SS process is long now it would be MUCH longer if a doctor was required to be present at each hearing.
