Page 1 of 2 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA PANAMA CITY DIVISION GLENN E. MIXON, Plaintiff, vs. MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, Commissioner of the Social Security Administration, Defendant. _______________________________ / ORDER Plaintiff has filed a complaint for judicial review of an adverse administrative decision of the Defendant and has filed a motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis (Docs. 1, 3). Upon review of the motion and attached financial affidavit, the court concludes that Plaintiff has failed to provide sufficient information for the court to grant the motion. In order to proceed with this case, Plaintiff therefore will be required to either file a properly completed in forma pauperis application or pay the full filing fee of $350.00. The court notes the following deficiencies in Plaintiff's affidavit of financial status. Plaintiff indicates that in 2008 he earned an average of "> $200.00" per month, which means an average of "greater than" $200.00 per month (Doc. 3 at 2). This answer is not sufficiently specific; in order to make a proper determination of Plaintiff's eligibility to proceed in forma pauperis the court must be provided with more precise information concerning Plaintiff's monthly income. Similarly, with respect to the Ford Astro automobile which Plaintiff states he owns, Plaintiff must state with more specificity the value of this vehicle; identifying the value as being "greater than" $100.00 is insufficient. Plaintiff should also be sure to fill out every applicable part of the form, including listing the total monthly payment on his debts.
