Social Security Overpayments

How Do I Handle This Situation?

I applied for divorced spouse benefits in early 2015 when I was 68 after receiving notification that I could be entitled to this benefit. I told Social Security I did not want this benefit if it affected my account in any way. I was subsequently approved for this benefit and received a lump sum payment in late 2015. I submitted a request to end this benefit and start receiving retirement benefits from my own account effective June 2016 when I was 69. During the time I was receiving divorced spouse benefits Social Security suspended my retirement account.

Hi,

Is There A Legal Way To Protect My Savings Accout From The Social Security Administration?

Is there a legal way to protect my savings account when SSA sees that I could pay an overpayment? However, if I do have to give them that money, I will be nearly bankrupt and have to sell my home with no place to go. I do not have enough money to live even in poverty if that money is gone.

I'm sorry, but I'm not a lawyer so I'm unable to answer your question. My expertise is limited to Social Security benefits only.
