Administrative: Social Security Disability Benefits-Residual Functional Capacity-ALJ’s Credibility Determination

Plaintiff applied for Social Security disability benefits after leaving her job. Petitioner requested an administrative hearing, presenting voluminous medical records. An Administrative Law Judge concluded that plaintiff did not have a listed impairment and had RFC to perform sedentary work and was therefore not disabled.

Where limitations listed in a treating physician’s medical source statement form are not found elsewhere in an applicant’s medical records, the record could support an ALJ’s determination that the applicant had RFC where the ALJ gave little weight to the MSS.

Judgment is affirmed.
