Igo v. Colvin, No. 16-1232 (8th Cir. 2016)Annotate this Case
Plaintiff challenged the denial of his application for disability insurance benefits. Plaintiff claims that he is disabled as a result of osteoarthritis and degenerative joint disease of the hips, degenerative disc disease of the lumbar and cervical spines, sensory and motor neuropathies, chronic shoulder pain and osteoarthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome. The court concluded that the ALJ did not err in failing to find that plaintiff's impairments met or equaled the criteria of Listing 1.02A; substantial evidence in the record as a whole supports the ALJ’s finding that plaintiff had the residual functional capacity to perform his past relevant work as a receptionist and thus was not disabled; and the denial of disability insurance benefits is supported by substantial evidence on the record as a whole. Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment.
