          CYNTHIA LYNN THOMPSON Plaintiff, Pro Se.

          BILLY J. WILLIAMS United States Attorney.

          RENATA GOWIE Assistant United States Attorney.

          OPINION AND ORDER

          ANNA J. BROWN, UNITED STATES SENIOR DISTRICT JUDGE.

         Plaintiff Cynthia Lynn T. seeks judicial review of a final decision of the Commissioner of the Social Security Administration (SSA) in which he denied Plaintiff's applications for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB) under Titles XVI and II of the Social Security Act.

         For the reasons that follow, the Court AFFIRMS the decision of the Commissioner and DISMISSES this matter.
