Bennie E. Shurn, Plaintiff-appellant, v. Donna E. Shalala, Secretary, Department of Health & Humanservices, Defendant-appellee, 50 F.3d 16 (9th Cir. 1995)Annotate this Case
Submitted March 9, 1995. *Decided March 17, 1995
Before: BROWNING, BOOCHEVER, and BEEZER, Circuit Judges.
The Secretary did not err by determining that Shurn was not disabled. The regulations indicate that a person aged 55 and older with transferable skills is not disabled if she can perform "light" or "sedentary" work. 20 C.F.R. Pt. 404, Subpt. P, App. 2, Rules 201.03, 202.03. Shurn concedes that she is capable of performing work requiring "light" levels of exertion, and substantial evidence supported the ALJ's conclusion that Shurn had gained transferable skills in her previous work. Matthews v. Shalala, 10 F.3d 678, 679 (9th Cir. 1993).
