Hi, Robert, my name is***** and I am here to assist you. I am a social security attorney in my private practice – that is ALL I do. Please let me know that my post here is coming through for you by typing a quick reply.
Also, before we get started, I am confused by your statement above. Today is 10/18 and you prior attorney (who provided you accuracy and an answer to the question you asked for, actually) only opted out last night? There are few and far between any lawyers the exclusively practice SS law full time, much less are willing to help visitors here, so likely no one was available last night - I for one had other plans, so I was not here. And no, I don't contribute here 24/7. Today, for instance, I just returned from a day in court. I don't mind helping here, but I just need to know that you understand we don't work here per se, we are not "employees" of the site, and we share our time as we are able and willing. Given the niche-ness of SS work, that is likely why there was no one there to help you until I returned.
That said, since Attorney Phillips did provide you with the appeal docs, I suspect you wish to know HOW to prove the overpayment, not so much the procedure to submit the appeal, is that correct?
Also, at $20/mo for about 4 years, are we estimating you as having been paid about $960 total?
Just to keep you informed - I am leaving shortly for some Little League baseball for my son - I will try to check back with you later, otherwise, I'll be in the office tomorrow and will check back to see if you are to respond.
Until then, be well.
