Acting Commissioner of Social Security,
ORDER ON FEES UNDER THE EQUAL ACCESS TO JUSTICE ACT
Pursuant to Plaintiff's motion, and having reviewed Defendant's response,
Plaintiff is awarded $6,312.81 for attorney fees and expenses in full satisfaction of any
and all claims for attorney fees and expenses that may be payable to Plaintiff in this matter
under the Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJA), 28 U.S.C. § 2412.
Any fees paid belong to Plaintiff and not Plaintiff's attorney and can be offset to
satisfy any pre-existing debt that the litigant owes the United States. As true v. Ratliff, 560
U.S. 586 (2010). If Defendant can verify that Plaintiff does not owe a pre-existing debt to
the government subject to the offset, Defendant will direct that the award be made
payable to Plaintiff's attorney pursuant to the EAJA assignment duly signed by Plaintiff.
