An appeal hearing will be arranged if the Appeals Officer considers that more details are needed in order to decide your appeal fairly.
Your case will be heard as soon as possible at a local venue, or if you live in the Dublin area, at D’Olier House, D’Olier Street, Dublin 2. We will tell you the exact time, date and venue as soon as the arrangements are made. How soon your case can be held will depend on the number of cases awaiting hearing in your area.
If you do not fully understand the Department of Social Protection decision in your case, you should contact the office that made the decision and ask them to explain it, so that you will be best able to present your case at the hearing.
