IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
FORT SMITH DIVISION
CHERISH M. OBERLIES
CIVIL NO. 12-2177
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, Commissioner
Social Security Administration
Plaintiff 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 Plaintiff’s IFP application.
Plaintiff’s IFP application indicates that she receives $704.00 a month from long-term
disability, which will end in September 2012, and her husband receives $1,800 from his
employment at Simmons Food. ECF No. 2, at 1. However, Plaintiff does not specify how often
her husband is compensated and if this figure represents his gross or net income. As such,
Plaintiff is directed to submit an amended IFP application providing more specific information
regarding her sources of income. Plaintiff is directed to file her amended IFP application on or
before August 20, 2012. 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 this 6th day of August 2012.
