Social Security Overpayments

Why Is Social Security Making Me Pay So Much Back Each Month?

I turned 66 feb 3, 2020. I am drawing half of my husbands social security. My question is 1994 I was drawing s.s.disability from back surgery and injury. I later was able to work some part time. I went to get work release each time. I went back to work full time 6 yrs ago. When I went in feb. to start drawing they said they over paid me in disability,ty benefits $21,000.00 so I had to pay back over half of my monthly check and repay. I will only get $300 each month for 3 yrs until -aid. Instead of $1028 a month.

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.

Hi,

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.

Can Social Security Seize My Liquid Assets If They Say That They Overpaid Me?

Can Social Security seize my liquid assets in my bank when they say that they have overpaid me? Who in my geographic area (western colorado) has your professional license and would advise me?

Hi,

No, Social Security can't seize funds that you have in a bank account, but they can reclaim benefit payments that were directly deposited if it turns out that the payments weren't due.

Why Would My Friend Have To Repay The Money That Her Parents Received?

my friend was adopted when she was 7 years old...apparently her parents received money for her from social security that she knew nothing about until she applied for her own benefit at age 62 and they told her she would have to repay the money....this seems wrong on so many levels...I have never heard of such a scam....why in the world would she have to repay money they received? thank you.?
