Customer Question

Social Security says they overpaid me by $11000 because I had bonds on my son's name and mine claiming the value of the bonds counted as an asset. The bonds were purchased by my relatives for my son's education. He has since cashed the bonds. I never considered them an asset. Do I have the basis for appeal?

Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you today.

You may certainly appeal and then if that is unsuccessful claim hardship as well.You always have the right here to appeal and also claim hardship which I am sure it is.

Appeal rights here.

You would want to be able to show where they were cashed and used to pay his tuition.You have burden at hearing to show this to prove that you did not benefit here.

Fallback request for hardship waiver...

I wish you the best here with your appeal and waiver only if you have too.

Thanks again.
