What If I Have Special Needs?
If you need an interpreter...
The hearing office requires the use of its own official interpreters (sign or language) during the hearing. The hearing office provides the interpreter at no cost to the party. If you use or need an interpreter, contact the hearing office immediately to notify them of your need.
If you have other special needs...
Most, but not all, hearing office sites are accessible to persons with physical disabilities. If you are required to appear in person and require disability accommodation(s), contact the hearing office immediately to notify them of your need(s).
Participants who are deaf, hard of hearing, or speech impaired and use a TTY (text telephone) or PC (personal computer) to communicate may contact the hearing office by first calling the WI TRS (Wisconsin Telecommunications Relay System) at 1-800-947-3539. Instruct the Communications Assistant to contact the hearing office at the telephone number listed on the hearing notice.
