Social Security Answer:
The problem and questions:
I was overpaid 35,000. Social Security took back 6000. I appealed the entire amount and have not received a decision from two - three years ago.
I am now getting my full SS. When will they make a decision? Is there a time limit? The overpayment was from me applying too early because I decided to keep on working. I'm still working. I personally went to Social Security on Blue Lagoon Drive in Miami, twice, and tried to stop the money from coming in. They didn't stop it. These two visits are on their computer record.
Is 30,000 or under 30,000 some kind of internal threshold? If I win the appeal will they refund the 6,000? Are they just waiting for me to die? I believe the responsible manager(s), for the overpayment, are just shuffling me around so the 35,000 doesn't show up on their record. They could have denied the appeal a long time ago. I requested, in writing, an Administrative Judge decide this appeal.
What can I do now?

There are three steps to decide an overpayment. First there is the waiver, then there is a personal conference, and then there is the law judge hearing.
You should have decisions on the first two by now and should have signed an SSA501 for a hearing.
There is a system that Social Security has that keeps tract of the hearings since it can take a long time for them to be held.
What you need is the dates of the prior decisions and the date that you signed the hearing request (501).
Sounds like someone might have something buried on their desks....If you cannot get anywhere with the district manager....call your senator or congressman and get them involved. They get immediate attention at the office level and results are much faster....Let me know how things turn out.....There is no limit on the time they can collect overpayments (as far as I know)......Carol
