Julin v. Colvin, No. 15-1280 (8th Cir. 2016)Annotate this Case
Plaintiff appealed the denial of her application for supplemental security income. Plaintiff based her claims of disability on depression, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Plaintiff alleged that these conditions caused her difficulties with maintaining focus, energy, concentration, social interactions, and a regular schedule. The court concluded that the ALJ properly discounted plaintiff's credibility; the ALJ gave good reasons for the weight accorded to the medical evidence where the ALJ was entitled to discount the opinions of plaintiff's treating physician insofar as they relied on plaintiff's subjective complaints; and sufficient medical evidence supports the ALJ's determination of residual functional capacity. Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment.
