Minnesota District Court Reverses ALJ
September 12, 2016. In this case, the claimant with anxiety and depression, among other impairments, was denied benefits. While she was evaluated at a Social Security Administration consultative psychological examination, the opinion of the Agency’s consultative psychologist that the claimant would have difficulty interacting with others and tolerating work-place stresses due to her psychological impairments was not discussed at all by the ALJ, and further, these limitations were not included in his RFC finding. The district court held that this was error, finding that the ALJ’s analysis did not provide sufficient information to engage in proper review.
