I received a letter from Social Security stating that they

I received a letter from Social Security stating that they are stopping my Social Security payments for all of 2016 and say that we owe them all payments we received for 2016. They state that this is due to them having information telling them that I expect to earn $189,000.00 this year. I in fact have not worked at all this year or the last several years. I have no idea how or where they got this information which is wrong. What do I do now?JA: The Retirement Accountant will know how to help. Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?Customer: Will a meeting with my local Social Security office be able to make this right, or will I need to be ready with an attorney?

This isn't the amount of my monthly social security benefits nor the correct time of the month. So I am wondering what this deposit is about.

Just recently I had my financial responsibility returned to me from Adult protective Services in the county of which I live, I have SSDI. Now with my own bank account and Direct deposit I'd like the remainder of monies in the account the county had set up for me. I've tried several times to contact the payee assigned to me to no avail, I resorted to going to the county building to get an answer but was given the run around and told they've returned it to Social Security. Today just as every week I received a weekly allowance from the county, so now that I've been lied to what is my recourse?
