Pleading Standards General rules for pleading complaints are governed by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. However, the Local Rules of the United States District Court, Eastern District of California, supplement the Federal Rules. Under Local Rule 206, the following information must be included in a complaint: (1) In actions involving claims for retirement, survivors, disability, health insurance and black lung benefits, the last four digits of the social security number of the worker on whose wage record the application for benefits was filed (who may or may not be the plaintiff); or (2) In actions involving claims for supplemental security income benefits, the last four digits of social security number of the plaintiff. LR 206. Plaintiff's complaint alleges that he seeks judicial review of an opinion whose caption states a claim for "Period of Disability, Disability Insurance Benefits and, Supplemental Security Income" but Plaintiff failed to include the information required by Local Rule 206. Although Plaintiff's complaint was not filed in compliance with the Local Rules, the Court will not require Plaintiff to file of an amended complaint. However, Plaintiff shall provide the last four digits of his social security number to Defendant within seven days of a request made by Defendant. IT IS SO ORDERED.
