I represent a 50-year-old computer programmer from Fairlawn NJ with neuropathy in his extremities in connection with his claim for Social Security Disability (“SSD”) benefits. The State agency applied the grid rules to issue a partially favorable decision because a transferable skill analysis did not find three jobs to which the claimant’s skills could transfer. Yesterday, the Administrative Law Judge agreed that the claimant was entitled to the remainder of the SSD benefits OTR.
Under the grid rules, a claimant is disabled if they cannot perform a significant range of work. Last week, the Ninth Circuit reversed a denial of SSD benefits when it ruled that two occupations do not
constitute a “significant range of work.”
It is unclear if the two approvals represent a haphazard convergence of favorable outcomes or an increased focus on that particular vocational factor.
