ENTRY - The standard for disability claims under the Social Security Act is stringent. The Act does not contemplate degrees of disability or allow for an award based on partial disability. Furthermore, the standard of review of the Commissioner 9;s denial of benefits is narrow. The Court reviews the record as a whole, but does not re-weigh the evidence or substitute its judgment for the ALJ's. The Court must uphold a decision where, as here, it is supported by substantial evidence in the record. As the Court cannot find a legal basis to overturn the ALJ's determination that Howell does not qualify for disability benefits, the Commissioner's decision is AFFIRMED. **SEE ENTRY** Signed by Magistrate Judge Denise K. LaRue on 4/17/2015. (AH)
