No, there is almost no chance of getting any monetary remedy out of the Social Security Administration for a monetary error which has been corrected.
You got the benefit of getting the creditors off of your back for a time, and avoiding adverse court judgments with horrific amounts of attorney's fees and interest added, by filing the BK in 2005.
The best ways to start rebuilding credit after a BK are to:
1. NEVER be late on ANY payment, including utilities.
2. Get SOME form of credit card, even if it is a bogus "secured" card with a $500 limit based on the $500.00 that they make you deposit into a savings account, and then make monthly purchases and make payments on time EVERY month.
All of my Chapter 7
BK clients have reported getting new offers of credit in the mail starting no later than 3 years after they filed.
Being denied credit is not something you can sue for, unless it is caused by a FALSE report or reports to the credit agencies. Although freedom of contract
is a fundamental and Constitutionally-protected right, the specific right to get credit extended is NOT. Like getting peace between two countries, extension of credit requires the permission of BOTH sides.
Hope this helps.
