ENTRY REVIEWING THE COMMISSIONER'S DECISION - Plaintiff K.D.,1 on behalf of J.D., a minor, appeals the denial of J.D.'s application for supplemental security income ("SSI") benefits. K.D. applied for benefits on J.D's behalf on June 25, 2013. [Filing No. 5-5 at 3.] The claim was initially denied in August 13, 2013, [Filing No. 5-4 at 2], and upon reconsideration on September 26, 2013, [Filing No. 5-4 at 10]. Administrative Law Judge ("ALJ") Albert Velazquez held a hearing on March 30, 2015, and issued a decision on April 17, 2015, concluding that J.D. was not disabled. [Filing No. 5-2 at 12-24.] The Appeals Council denied a request for review, rendering the ALJ's decision the final decision of the Commissioner of the Social Security Administration ("Commissioner") for the purposes of this review. [Filing No. 5-2 at 2.] K.D. filed this action on behalf of J.D. under 42 U.S.C. ยง 405(g), requesting that the Court review the ALJ's denial. [Filing No. 1.] The Court can find no legal basis presented by K.D. to reverse the ALJ's decision that J.D. was not disabled during the relevant time period. Therefore, the decision below is AFFIRMED. Final judgment shall issue accordingly. (See Entry.) Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 6/19/2017.(RSF)
