3. Any payment shall be made payable to Plaintiff's counsel as Plaintiff's assignee and delivered to Plaintiff's counsel; and
4. This award is without prejudice to the rights of Plaintiff's counsel to seek Social Security Act attorney's fees under 42 U.S.C. § 406, subject to the provisions of the EAJA.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
