The Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR) is responsible for holding hearings and issuing decisions as part of the Social Security Administration's process for determining whether or not a person may receive benefits. ODAR is one of the largest administrative adjudication systems in the world.

ODAR directs hearing offices, in the following states, comprised of administrative law judges (ALJ) who conduct impartial "de novo" hearings and make decisions on appealed determinations involving retirement, survivors, disability, and supplemental security income benefits.

Office of the Chief Administrative Law Judge directs a nationwide field organization consisting of 10 regional offices, 169 hearing offices, 5 national hearing centers, and 1 national case assistance center.

Each year, more than 1,300 ALJs render over 700,000 decisions at the hearing level.

Through the Appeals Council, ODAR also reviews ALJ decisions on appeal by claimants, or on its own motion, and issues the final agency decision on such cases. The Appeals Council consists of about 100 administrative appeals judges and appeals officers and renders the agency's final decision in over 89,000 cases per year.
