WINIFRED NNAKWE, PLAINTIFF,
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Seybert, District Judge
On May 17, 2011, pro se, plaintiff Winifred Nnakwe ("Plaintiff") filed a Complaint seeking review of the decision of an administrative law judge pursuant to Section 205(g) and/or Section 1631(c)(3) of the Social Security Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) and/or § 1383(c)(3). Plaintiff has also filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis. Upon review of the declaration accompanying Plaintiff's application, Plaintiff's financial status qualifies her to commence this action without prepayment of the filing fees. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1). Accordingly, Plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis is granted.
The Clerk of the Court is directed to forward to the United States Marshal for the Eastern District of New York copies of Plaintiff's Summons, Complaint and this Order for service upon the Defendant without prepayment of fees; and to mail a copy of this Order to the Plaintiff at her last known address.
