Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit - 94 F.3d 648 (8th Cir. 1996)

Submitted April 12, 1996. Decided Aug. 12, 1996

Before MAGILL and LOKEN, Circuit Judges, and GOLDBERG,*  Judge.


Ruby Cullins appeals from the district court's1  order affirming the denial of her application for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. The magistrate judge held that the administrative law judge's (ALJ) determination that Cullins could perform past relevant work as a cashier, and thus was not disabled, was supported by substantial evidence.

Cullins contends that there was insufficient evidence to support a finding that her past work as a cashier required only a "sedentary" exertion level. She also contends that the ALJ failed to fully consider her mental impairment when determining her residual functional capacity.

We have carefully review the record and conclude that there is substantial evidence supporting the ALJ's decision to deny Cullins SSI benefits. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the district court. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
