GWIN, UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE: Plaintiff Dennis Piotrowski seeks judicial review of the Social Security Administration Commissioner’s final decision denying his application for Disability Insurance Benefits and Supplemental Security Income.1 On December 7, 2022, Magistrate Judge Clay filed a Report and Recommendation (“R&R”) recommending that the Court affirm the Commissioner’s final decision.2 Defendant did not file an objection to the R&R. The Federal Magistrates Act requires district courts to conduct a de novo review only of objected-to portions of an R&R.3 Absent objection, district courts may adopt an R&R without review.4 Nevertheless, the Court has reviewed the R&R and concurs in its reasoning and result. 1 Doc. 1 at 1.
