Susan L. Greifzu-Hamric appeals from the order of the district court1 affirming the termination of her disability insurance benefits based on a finding of substantial 1 The Honorable Noelle C. Collins, United States Magistrate Judge for the Eastern District of Missouri, to whom the case was referred for final disposition by consent of the parties pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 535(c). medical improvement. For reversal, she contends that the ALJ (1) failed to give adequate weight to a treating physician’s opinion; (2) erred in her credibility finding and RFC determination; and (3) relied on an improper vocational expert opinion regarding the availability of work.2 Upon review, we reject Greifzu-Hamric’s arguments, and conclude that substantial evidence supports the decision to terminate benefits. See Delph v. Astrue, 538 F.3d 940, 945 (8th Cir. 2008). The judgment is affirmed. See 8th Cir. R. 47B. ______________________________ 2 This court need not address arguments Greifzu-Hamric failed to present to the district court. See Hepp v. Astrue, 511 F.3d 798, 806 (8th Cir. 2008). -2-
