KAREN MILLER, Plaintiff,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Commissioner of Social Security, Defendant.
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION TO THE HONORABLE LORNA G. SCHOFIELD
FRANK MAAS, Magistrate Judge.
Pro se plaintiff Karen Miller brings this action to seek review of a final decision of the Commissioner of the Social Security Administration ("Commissioner") finding her not disabled. The Commissioner has moved to remand the case for further proceedings so that the Administrative Law Judge ("ALJ") can make additional findings and more adequately consider the impact of Ms. Miller's left eye blindness on her ability to perform light work. (ECF No. 21).
During a telephone conference earlier today, Ms. Miller consented on the record to having the case remanded to the Social Security Administration. Accordingly, the case should be remanded for further administrative proceedings pursuant to the fourth sentence of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g). In light of this recommendation, I have closed the reference to me.
