Before the court is Defendant's Motion to Remand (ECF No. 21), to which Plaintiff
consents (ECF No. 21-1 at 2). Upon review of the motion and the record, the court grants

impairment, and to the related opinion evidence from Dr. Husid. In addition, the ALJ is to further
consider Plaintiff’s VA decision pursuant to Social Security Ruling 06-03p. Finally, the ALJ is to
give Plaintiff another opportunity for a hearing, take any action necessary to complete the
Administrative record, and issue a new decision.
Therefore, Defendant’s Motion to Remand (ECF No. 21) is GRANTED and this action
is remanded to the Commissioner for further evaluation under the sentence four of 42 U.S.C. §
IT IS SO ORDERED.
