Claimant is an advanced age woman who suffers from a learning disability, Parkinson’s disease, degenerative disc disease and adjustment disorder. The Office of Vocational Rehabilitation assisted in helping this client secure a job. Despite that the woman was employed in a suitable work environment, her work activities did not rise to the level of substantial gainful activity.
This case was handled by Galfand Berger’s attorney, Gabriela Raful. Evidence and a detailed brief showed that the value of our client’s earnings did not meet the substantial gainful activity amounts. We were able to recover $28,000 in past due benefits for our client.
