Claimant filed an application for benefits on June 16, 2010, alleging she was no longer able to work as of January 29, 2009, due to mood disorder, personality disorder, bipolar disorder, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, peripheral neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, degenerative disc disease, neuritis and scoliosis. After a hearing, an Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ”) denied the claim, which was appealed to the Appeals Council. The Appeals Council found that the ALJ did not properly evaluate the medical evidence in regard to Claimant’s psychiatric disorders and remanded the claim for a new hearing. A second hearing resulted in a fully favorable decision. Claimant was represented by attorney Howard D. Olinsky.
