COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, Defendant. ______________________________________/ ORDER GRANTING LEAVE TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS THIS CAUSE is before the Court upon Plaintiff’s Application to Proceed in District Court without Prepaying Fees or Costs, ECF No. [3] (“Motion”). The Motion represents that Plaintiff earns no wages, has no money in a checking or savings account, and has no credit cards, but notes that her monthly expenses are paid from her husband’s SSI check.
