WITHOUT PREPAYMENT OF FEES
TWENTY DAY DEADLINE
On April 9, 2018, Plaintiff Alicia Hernandez De Munoz (“Plaintiff”) filed this action
18 seeking judicial review of a final decision of the Commissioner of Social Security
19 (“Commissioner” or “Defendant”) denying her application for disability benefits pursuant to the
20 Social Security Act. Plaintiff did not pay the filing fee in this action and instead filed an
21 application to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915.
Upon review of
22 Plaintiff’s application, she indicates that her husband receives $1,455.00 per month in SSI
23 benefits and that her house has an approximate value of $330,000.00. Therefore, the Court is
24 unable to determine if Plaintiff is entitled to proceed without prepayment of fees in this action.
Accordingly, the Court will order Plaintiff to complete and file an Application to Proceed
26 in District Court Without Prepaying Fees or Costs (Long Form) – AO 239. If Plaintiff is
27 unwilling to complete and submit the long form application, Plaintiff must pay the filing fee in
Based upon the foregoing, it is HEREBY ORDERED that:
The Clerk of the Court is directed to forward an Application to Proceed in District
Court Without Prepaying Fees or Costs (Long Form) – AO 239 to Plaintiff;
Within twenty (20) days of the date of this order, Plaintiff shall either (1) pay the
$400.00 filing fee for this action, or (2) complete and file the enclosed
Application to Proceed in District Court Without Prepaying Fees or Costs (Long
Form) – AO 239; and
If Plaintiff fails to comply with this order, this action shall be dismissed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
