I have presented a waiver to social security requesting that

I have presented a waiver to social security requesting that I not return over payments of prior disability payments because it was not my fault that they sent them. I reported my return to work date but was assured by their agent that I would continue to receive payments until they felt a relapse of my broken leg symptoms would not occur. Their only response to this date is a letter that says "We are writing to tell you that you are no longer eligible for payments of this claim as of June 2016. Does this mean that the over payments that they claim prior to this date are now waived?Thank you Debbie Reilly

Turned 62 on 11/28/15. Applied ss work benefits in 12/2015

Turned 62 on 11/28/15. Applied for my ss work benefits in 12/2015 and MOE of 12/2015. Was not eligible for spousal benefits and did not desire to receive spousal benefits. Husband turned 62 on 12/25/15 and applied for his benefits in 1/2016. His MOE was 1/2016. SS Admin started sending me spousal benefits 2/2016 even though I did not apply for them. Am I required to take the spousal benefits even though I do not want them? Retirement plan was to wait till full retirement age to receive spousal benefits. The new BBA laws should not apply to me since I turned 62 before 1/2/2016. Did the law prior to BBA require me to take spousal benefits when my husband applied, even though I did not apply for them?
