Claimant Awarded $49,000 Following Remand

April 12, 2015. This case was remanded by the Eastern District of Michigan District Court to reconsider the ALJ’s nonsevere migraine headache finding, and to provide a legally sufficient discussion of the claimant’s longtime treating physician’s assessment of her mental and physical disabilities. At the supplemental hearing the ALJ offered a fully favorable decision in exchange for an amended onset date to the claimant’s 50th birthday (which claimant’s previous representative had actually suggested in a prehearing memorandum prior to the initial hearing), and the ALJ ruled from the bench in her favor.
