Hagans v. Comm'r of Soc. Sec., 11-2526

In plaintiff's suit for Social Security disability insurance benefits, district court's decision affirming the Social Security Administration's (SSA) determination that he was no longer disabled is affirmed, as applying an appropriately high level of deference under Skidmore, the SSA's interpretation of section 423(f) is sufficiently persuasive to defer to it, and as such, district court properly held that the SSA correctly evaluated plaintiff's condition as of the date on which the agency first found his eligibility for benefits ceased.
