Before the Court is plaintiff Teddy A. Brinker’s motion for attorney’s fees and costs
pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act (“EAJA”), 28 U.S.C. § 2412(d). The Commissioner
responded and does not object to the fees and costs requested. For good cause shown, the Court
finds and directs:

for the cost of service).
The EAJA fee award is payable to plaintiff and mailed to plaintiff’s counsel but
subject to any offset to satisfy any pre-existing debt owed to the United States. Astrue v. Ratliff,

Defendant shall certify said award and pay this amount.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 28th day of August, 2013.
