    Answered . When you file the complaint, you will either send a copy of the lawsuit certified mail to the US ATtorney in your area, the US Attorney General, and the Commissioner of Social Sedurity - or ask/convince the court to send a copy to those people for you. The government then has about 60 dyas to provide a complete coopy of all the documents and the testimony in your case to you and to the court.

    Best of luck to you.
