The Appeals Council is the final step under the Social Security Administration Disability Determination process that a claimant can request access to for a decision.  The Social Security Vocational Expert is not normally a part of this process but could sometime receive a request for a Remand study or Interrogatory as discussed earlier.  The reason for this is to support or provide an impartial view that perhaps wasn’t properly spelled out during the Appeals stage of the claimant’s claim, or due to issues found with the previous Administrative Law Judge’s (ALJ) decision, could drive the need for a new look at the available claimant information.
