Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
There is no statute of limitations for the government to seek to collect on an overpayment of which you were previously given notice.
Given the amount of time that has passed you are best off letting sleeping dogs lie and hope that when you apply for social security benefits that they don't delay those in an effort to collect on the overpayment.
At this point you should do nothing.

SSI is welfare. SSDI is social security disability that you paid for. You may qualify for SSDI as well so don't overlook that benefit.
If you have an existing SSI overpayment and you apply for SSI, if they give it to you they will deduct 10% from your SSI benefit to put toward the overpayment.

This seems like a very crucial matter for you, and your questions and issues suggest that an in-depth conversation might best suit your needs. If you are interested, for a very nominal charge I can offer you a private phone conference as opposed to continuing in this question and answer thread which is searchable and viewable by the public.If I have already provided you with the information you asked for, would you please now rate my service to you so I can be compensated for assisting you?Thanks in advance,Doug
