thereof, if is
ORDERED that Defendant pay to Plaintiff reasonable attorney’s fees in the
amount of $4,000.00. Payment shall be made payable to Plaintiff and delivered to
Plaintiff’s counsel. See Astrue v. Ratliff, 130 S. Ct. 2521 (2010) (holding that EAJA
awards are payable to litigants and that EAJA awards are subject to offset by the
