Federal Court Review of SSA Disability Denial

Review of the Commissioner’s decision is limited to a determination as to whether the decision is supported by substantial evidence and was made pursuant to proper legal standards.  Rogers v. Comm’r of Soc. Sec., 486 F.3d 234, 241 (6th Cir. 2007).  Substantial evidence is relevant evidence adequate to support a conclusion.  Failure to follow agency rules and regulations “denotes a lack of substantial evidence, even where the conclusion of the ALJ may be justified upon the record.”  Blakley v. Comm’r of Soc. Sec., 581 F.3d 399, 407 (6th Cir. 2009).
