It happens from time to time, that the Social Security Administration will overpay a Claimant. Overpayments occur when a beneficiary has received more benefits than they were entitled to receive. An overpayment is the total amount an individual received for any period which exceeds the total amount which should have been paid for that period.
Overpayments occur in several ways, including:
- SSDI work related cessations
- SSDI medical cessations
- SSI excess resources
- SSI excess earnings
Individuals who return to work or enter the work force for the first time, will be assessed an overpayment. In order to challenge the fact of and/or amount of the overpayment, a Request for Reconsideration is necessary. This Request must be filed within 60 days of receipt of the Notice of Overpayment from SSA. Once a reconsideration has been filed, all efforts by the Social Security Administration to recoup overpayments must cease.
Social Security overpayments can sometimes be waived by the Social Security Administration if:
- The beneficiary was without fault and is unable to repay without risking the ability to provide for basic needs, OR
- Recovery of the overpayment would be unfair and against good conscience.
