Thank You, OMB!

     Social Security has withdrawn its proposal that would have required claimants to decide shortly after asking for a hearing whether they would demand an in-person hearing rather than accept a video hearing. The proposal would also have denied an in-person hearing if a claimant moved after filing a request for a hearing. Almost certainly, this was withdrawn because of opposition at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), a part of the White House. OMB approval is required before regulations may be published in the Federal Register.
