CIVIL NO. 11-2233
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, Commissioner
Social Security Administration
Plaintiff has submitted a complaint for filing in this district, together with a request for
leave to proceed in forma pauperis (“IFP”). ECF Nos. 1, 2. The undersigned finds that more
information is needed to rule on her IFP application.
Plaintiff’s IFP application indicates that she has a husband with whom she owns a 2009
Chevy Cobalt. ECF No. 2, at 2. However, she does not state if her husband is employed, and,
if so, the nature of his employment and income. She also does not specify her living
arrangements (i.e., whether she rents or owns her home). As such, the clerk is directed to return
the IFP application to counsel with directions to provide more specific information regarding
Plaintiff’s husband’s employment and the full extent of her property. Plaintiff is directed to file
her amended IFP application on or before December 20, 2011. Should Plaintiff fail to comply
within the required period of time, her complaint will become subject to summary dismissal for
failure to obey a court order
IT IS SO ORDERED.
