     Effective July 1, 2018, assignments of all civil actions in which a plaintiff seeks review of a final administrative decision of the Commissioner of Social Security pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) and under other sections of the Social Security  Act that incorporate the judicial review procedures of 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) by reference, shall be made pursuant to the Social Security Plan.

Filing requirements, as well as the other procedures in Social Security cases, can be found in Local Rule 5.5
