Appeals Guide - The Hearing Notice

After receiving your appeal, the Appeal Tribunal will promptly schedule a hearing and mail a hearing notice to all parties. Call the Appeal Tribunal if you do not receive your hearing notice within three weeks after filing your appeal.

The hearing notice will tell you:

  • the date, time, and place of the hearing
  • whether the hearing is in person or by telephone
  • the issue or issues which will be taken up at the hearing
  • instructions for participating in the hearing

Read your hearing notice carefully. Check to make sure all issues are listed. Also check to see whether your hearing is by telephone or in person. Follow all instructions on the hearing notice.

Be sure to call the Appeal Tribunal if:

  • The hearing notice does not list the issues you expect to be covered at the hearing, or
  • You have a serious problem with the date, time, or place of the hearing.

Hearing location. Hearing Officers are stationed in Anchorage, and Juneau. If you live within 55 road miles of these two cities, you will usually be scheduled for an in-person hearing. By special request, we hold in-person hearings in Fairbanks.  If you live anywhere else in Alaska, the rest of the United States, or Canada, you will have a telephone hearing.

Telephone Hearings. If your hearing is by telephone, you must call the Appeal Tribunal at 1-800-232-4762 when you receive the hearing notice. Give the telephone number(s) where you and your witnesses can be reached at the time of the hearing. If you do not call and provide your telephone number, the Hearing Officer cannot contact you for the hearing, and you will likely receive an unfavorable decision.
