CRESCENT JONES, Plaintiff,
COMMISSIONER SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION, Defendant.
MALCOLM F. MARSH, District Judge.
Based on the stipulation of the parties, it is hereby ORDERED that attorney's fees in the amount of $4, 272.00 shall be awarded to plaintiff pursuant to the Equal Access to Justice Act, 28 U.S.C. § 2412. In addition, plaintiff is awarded $20.31 in costs pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1920. The parties agree that attorney's fees and costs will be paid to plaintiff's attorney, dependent upon verification that plaintiff has no debt which qualifies for offset against the awarded fees, pursuant to the Treasury Offset Program. See Astrue v. Ratliff, ___ U.S. ___ , 130 S.Ct. 2521 (2010).
If plaintiff has no such debt, then the check shall be made out to plaintiff's attorney and mailed to plaintiff's attorney's office.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
