Withdrawal [Hearing] Law and Legal Definition

A withdrawal is an agreement made by a claimant or authorized representative to withdraw one or more issues that is raised in a hearing request. A withdrawal can either be conditional or unconditional. A conditional withdrawal is made on the condition that an agency performs specified action(s). In some cases, a conditional withdrawal may require the claimant to provide a specific document before the county is required to perform a specified action such as reevaluate eligibility. In an unconditional withdrawal there are no such conditions.

A withdrawal may be full or partial. A full withdrawal withdraws all issues that are raised in a hearing request. However, a partial withdrawal does not withdraw all issues raised in a hearing request, but withdraws at least one. Therefore, the remaining issue(s) should be adjudicated.
