MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
RODNEY W. SIPPEL, District Judge.
This matter is before me on a Report and Recommendation to affirm the decision of the Commissioner of Social Security to deny Plaintiff benefits under Title XVI of the Social Security Act. Neither of the parties has filed an objection to this recommendation.
This matter was referred to United States Magistrate Judge Shirley Padmore Mensah for a Report and Recommendation pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b). Judge Mensah issued a Report and Recommendation on August 22, 2014 that recommended that the Commissioner's decision to deny benefits should be affirmed. Judge Mensah found that the Administrative Law Judge's determination that Plaintiff was not entitled to benefits was supported by substantial evidence in the record.
Any objections to Judge Mensah's Report and Recommendation had to be filed by September 5, 2014. Neither of the parties has filed an objection as of today's date.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Report and Recommendation of the United States Magistrate Judge Mensah is SUSTAINED, ADOPTED AND INCORPORATED herein. The Commissioner of Social Security's decision to deny Supplemental Security Income benefits to Plaintiff is affirmed.
