Supplemental Security Income Benefit Case

In Hulsey v. Astrue, No. 09-2838, plaintiff's appeal from the judgment of the district court upholding the Social Security Commissioner's decision to deny her application for supplemental security income benefits under Title XVI of the Social Security Act, the court affirmed where, even assuming for the sake of argument that plaintiff was unable to perform some unskilled work, the Appeals Council's conclusion that plaintiff could perform housekeeping work was supported by substantial evidence.

 

As the court wrote:  "Tammy Hulsey appeals the judgment of the district court1 upholding the Social Security Commissioner's decision to deny her application for supplemental security income ("SSI") benefits under Title XVI of the Social Security Act ("SSA"). 42 U.S.C. §§ 1381-1383f. We affirm."
