United States Court of Appeals For the Eighth Circuit ___________________________ No. 16-1235 ___________________________ Christine Brown lllllllllllllllllllll Plaintiff - Appellant v. Carolyn W. Colvin, Acting Commissioner of Social Security lllllllllllllllllllll Defendant - Appellee ____________ Appeal from United States District Court for the Western District of Arkansas - Harrison ____________ Submitted: September 20, 2016 Filed: September 23, 2016 [Unpublished] ____________ Before WOLLMAN, ARNOLD, and GRUENDER, Circuit Judges. ____________ PER CURIAM. Appellate Case: 16-1235 Page: 1 Date Filed: 09/23/2016 Entry ID: 4451262 Christine Brown appeals the district court’s1 order affirming the denial of supplemental security income and disability insurance benefits. We disagree with Mrs. Brown that the administrative law judge (ALJ) did not adequately account for her mental impairments in determining her residual functional capacity (RFC), see Buford v. Colvin, 824 F.3d 793, 796 (8th Cir. 2016) (it is claimant’s burden to establish RFC); and we conclude that substantial evidence on the record as a whole supports the ALJ’s adverse decision, see Ash v. Colvin, 812 F.3d 686, 689-90 (8th Cir. 2016) (substantial evidence is enough that reasonable minds would find it adequate). The judgment of the district court is affirmed. ______________________________ 1 The Honorable Erin Setser, United States Magistrate Judge for the Western District of Arkansas, to whom the case was referred for final disposition by consent of the parties pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(c). -2- Appellate Case: 16-1235 Page: 2 Date Filed: 09/23/2016 Entry ID: 4451262
