Disabled individuals in Indiana who are summoned by a Social Security judge may consider video teleconferencing (VTC), especially if it is highly inconvenient for them to appear in court due to their condition.

Like typical hearings, VTC enables individuals to clearly see and hear other participants through colored screen monitors. Individuals using VTC can actually see and interact with the judge and other hearing participants. VTC is a convenient way for individuals to present themselves in a hearing without going to a physical court. Individuals should note that VTC is highly secured and the Social Security Administration (SSA) only records conversations, not video footage.
