SSI Self-Help for Overpayments: Administrative Waivers and More

When: Tuesday, January 28, 2020, at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET.

While the overpayment of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits can result from a seemingly endless variety of factors, the amount of an overpayment is always the difference between the amount that was received and the amount that was due. The Social Security Administration (SSA) sends out thousands of overpayment notices to SSI recipients every year. An advocate may not be able to represent all SSI recipients who come in for assistance after they receive a notice of an overpayment from SSA.

In this Legal Basics webinar, we will explore what options an SSI recipient has when they receive a notice of overpayment from SSA, and the difference between appealing a determination of an overpayment and requesting a waiver. We will cover how advocates can assist individuals in making their own requests to SSA, including filing a waiver application, asking for an administrative waiver, and getting a $10/month payment plan.

Previous NCLER trainings on this topic include: SSI Overpayment: Walk Through a Case and “I Can’t Pay That!”: Social Security Overpayments and Low-Income Clients.
