Administrative: SSDI-Disability-Residual Functional Capacity

Plaintiff appealed the district court’s judgment upholding the Social Security Administration commissioner’s decision to deny SSDI benefits to plaintiff, after an ALJ concluded that plaintiff was not under a disability and had residual functional capacity to perform light work.

Where there was substantial evidence to support the finding that plaintiff had capacity to perform light, unskilled work within several limitations because plaintiff’s mental impairments had been stabilized with medication, the ALJ correctly denied SSDI benefits to plaintiff.

Judgment is affirmed.
