commissioner for further proceedings under sentence four of 42 U.S.C. ' 405(g). Now before
the court is plaintiff’s motion for an award of attorney=s fees under the Equal Access to Justice
Act, 28 U.S.C. ' 2412 in the amount of $5,929.57 and costs in the amount of $0. (Dkt.

IT IS ORDERED that the parties’ stipulation for an award of attorney fees under the
Equal Access to Justice Act is GRANTED.
Plaintiff is awarded fees in the amount of
$5,929.57. These fees are awarded to plaintiff and not plaintiff’s attorney and can be offset
to satisfy pre-existing debts that the litigant owes the United States under Astrue v. Ratliff, 560
U.S. 586 (2010). If counsel for the defendant verifies plaintiff owes no pre-existing debt
subject to offset, defendant shall direct that the award be made payable to plaintiff’s attorney
pursuant to the EAJA assignment duly signed by plaintiff and counsel.
