ACE Reporting-US has been awarded a contract to do Social Security Administration Disability Hearings.

ACE is in search of reliable, professional hearing reporters to provide service for this contract. Our government contract provides payment to ACE per hearing, and no transcripts are to be done. The reporters digitally record the hearings, per statute, and take specific verbatim log notes of each hearing. Each hearing lasts no longer than one hour. There will be, on average, 5 hearings per day, per venue. Lunch breaks will typically be at least 30‐60 minutes, and if the hearings get done earlier, the reporter is free to leave. Sometimes hearings fall out or get continued or postponed, and when that happens, as long as it is within 24 hours, the reporter will be compensated a cancellation fee.

Job Duties and Process
The venue provides the computer, along with technicians on-site in case there are any issues. It is a regular courtroom setting with an ALJ presiding. The reporter does not handle exhibits or mark exhibits. Our only job in this venue is to show up, log in to the computer with our PIV card, (each reporter will be issued this after completing their background check) and monitor the recording, along with taking the required verbatim notes on the computer. Training is done on-site by each individual office, and each VHR will be required to sign documents of security.

Pre-hiring Process
Each Hearing Reporter will be required to provide their social security number to complete a government and criminal background check, including fingerprints for a suitability determination by the SSA (Social Security Administration). This process takes approximately 30-days. Once the reporter has successfully completed the process, they will be issued a government PIV card and immediately start training.
