State Services for the Blind (SSB) has an appeal process if you are unhappy with a decision they made about your case. If you are an applicant or already a client, you have a right to:

  1. Ask for an informal review by a different SSB supervisor

  2. ask for mediation. This means a neutral third person will work with you and VRS to come to an agreement.

  3. present evidence, information and witnesses to an impartial hearing officer. The hearing officer will then make a decision in your case.
