Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You need to write an appeal to the director of SSA and attach a financial statement showing the extreme financial hardship and ask the director to waive the reimbursement of the over payment, this is all you can do. The director of the SSA has authority to waive repayment for good cause of significant financial hardship, which they do not do often, but it is the only option you have regarding this issue.

As far as a Hardship case (extreme) I don't know how well to tell my story other than the true- my bills are about 2500.00 and my rent is 600.00 and my monthly bills are about another 1200.00 monthly my income is about 600.00 monthly and my S.S.A. is only 745.00 monthly, as you can see there is hardly any money and if I lose my job I'm really screwed as far as bills and income!!!

Thank you for your reply.
The truth is all you can explain to the director of SS to ask for them to waive the repayment. They will look to verify what you tell them, so just tell them all of the truth to show how much of a hardship the repayment is.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
