Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Does your expertise in SSA include overpayment of SSDI? SSA claims they overpaid me over $57,000 for five years. They've lost my file and I was not able to view it at all. After completing the appellate process in continued to be denied. Reason, I should have told them that they were overpaying me! Talk about gray zones.
Lawyer: John Legal, Attorney replied 8 years ago

It is very tough gray area. If you still have appeals left I would suggest you hire a Social Security Disability attorney to help you. There may be some "technicalities" that you are not aware of that may help you win the argument.

 

If you have exhausted your appeals then I can offer some consolation: SSA is terrible at collecting on back debt. They will reduce your future payments, they will hold any tax refunds you have but they will NOT garnish your bank accounts, or try to collect from other assets you have.

Do you have the cite no. on non-garnishment of liquid assets?
Lawyer: John Legal, Attorney replied 8 years ago
There is no cite. They legally are entitled to garnish. It is just a matter of practice. They only seem to go after what they find easy.

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Well, if its not a written practice, it's not a fact that they won't touch liquid assets. Caution to you. Giving advice and someone acting on it could be dangerous with your answers.
Lawyer: John Legal, Attorney replied 8 years ago

If you want a cite you will find very few with SSA. Most of their cases end with an administrative decision that is unpublished. Very few have the money or the energy to take them to an appellate court where a case would be published. Their rules are obsure and definately would not state their collection practices. I am giving you facts based on over 10 years practicing administrative law and SSA. Many of the rules that you find with these agencies are unwritten. Only an experienced Elder Law Attorney will be able to guide you through this web. As initially stated. It will pay you to hire a lawyer.

I would hope to have an Accept and positive feedback from you. I gave you great advise. Sorry you choose not to believe it.
