Michael J. Giro, Petitioner Pro Se. Patrick Sullivan Polk, Office of General Counsel, U.S. RAILROAD RETIREMENT BOARD, Chicago, Illinois, for Respondent.
On Petition for Review of an Order of the Railroad Retirement Board. (15-AP-0066) Before GREGORY, Chief Judge, QUATTLEBAUM, Circuit Judge, and SHEDD, Senior Circuit Judge. Petition denied by unpublished per curiam opinion. Michael J. Giro, Petitioner Pro Se. Patrick Sullivan Polk, Office of General Counsel, U.S. RAILROAD RETIREMENT BOARD, Chicago, Illinois, for Respondent. Unpublished opinions are not binding precedent in this circuit. PER CURIAM:
Michael J. Giro seeks review of the Railroad Retirement Board's decision affirming the hearings officer's determination that March 1, 2013, is the beginning date of Giro's disability annuity under the Railroad Retirement Act, 45 U.S.C. §§ 231-231v (2018). Our review of the record discloses that the Board's decision is based upon substantial evidence and is without reversible error. Accordingly, we deny the petition for review for the reasons stated by the Board. Appeal of Michael J. Giro, No. 15-AP-0066 (R.R.B. Sept. 12, 2017). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
