Ash v. Colvin, No. 15-1133 (8th Cir. 2016)Annotate this Case
Plaintiff appealed the denial of her application for Social Security disability insurance benefits and supplemental security income. The court concluded that substantial evidence supported the ALJ’s finding that plaintiff did not meet the requirements for mental retardation in Listing 12.05C; that the ALJ characterized plaintiff's impairment as mild mental retardation at step two did not preclude the ALJ on this record from finding at step three that plaintiff did not exhibit deficits in adaptive functioning; and therefore, the court affirmed the judgment.
