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.

No, Social Security won't offset your tax refund to recover an overpayment if you have an approved repayment plan and you are making the agreed upon payments on timely basis.

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.
