Why Work For Us

Work in a division committed to fairly reviewing, upon request, agency determinations to ensure they conform to the individual's proper legal entitlement. We do this by holding evidentiary hearings in which we discern the pertinent facts, and then apply the applicable law to those facts to reach decisions. In doing these tasks, we keep in mind the following values: 1) We judge claims and not people; 2) We make decisions promptly; 3) We make decisions based on the law as it is and not as we might think it should be; and 4) We respect and honor the different backgrounds and experiences of participants in appeals.

Our division consists of 30 human service judges, three chief human service judges, an appeals administrator, a director, six paralegals, and eight support staff (some temporary). We received nearly 17,000 program appeals in the 2016 fiscal year.

This job offers the opportunity to work independently and set one's own schedule. It allows for much discretion. It has a fabulous group of colleagues. The work has a lot of variety and blends working with the public with health, medical and social issues and the law. If you like your independence and like legal work in the public sector, you will love this job.
