I've been on SS Disability for 2 1/2 years and received a nice lump sum when I was first approved. Of course, by now, the funds have all been spent on bills, etc. Now, after all of this time, SS informs me that they made a mistake and overpayed me to the tune of about $6,000 !! They claim that I was also receiving State Disability at the same time as SS was paying me. They claim that I reported a lower amount than what I was receiving from the state. Not true, as I had a company called Allsup handling my claim for me, as a benefit of my employer at the time. Allsup has my State Disability checkstubs in my file and it shows that I reported the correct amount. Allsup has tried in vain, to get a response from the SS office. Meanwhile, SS tried to stop my monthly payment in order to collect the overpayment. Mind you, I am a single parent, no child support, and no other means of income. I was told to appeal the decision and have filed the request. In the meantime, SS has agreed to take a minimum payment out each month until the hearing. I was also told that even if the judge reverses the decision in my favor and I don't have to repay the so-called overpayment, I am not entitled to be reimbursed for the amount they are witholding until my hearing. Has anyone else dealt with this issue? If so, how did the hearing go? Did you need legal representation? This is the pits!!
