Received a letter stating...

Received a letter stating I was overpaid 45 years ago $290.00 dollars from my fathers death while going to college, now I'm receiving Social Security and receiving $800.00 and they want to take the over payment, unable to pay necessities on $600.00

An overpayment occurs when Social Security pays you more than you should have been paid.

If you agree that you have been overpaid and are willing to pay it back,

but cannot afford to pay it back at the rate the SSA tells you about in our letter,

you should file Form SSA-632,
