What If I Decide To Withdraw My Request For A Hearing?

The appellant may withdraw the request for a hearing at any time before a decision on the merits is issued.

After receipt of a request, no hearing will be conducted.  The determination (the last decision made by the department) remains in effect and becomes final, without any further appeal rights.

The withdrawal request may be made in writing, by fax, by telephone call to the hearing office, or on the record during a scheduled hearing. The withdrawal request should include the hearing number.
