Social Security withheld $927.00 from me September 2012 that I should have been payed, I called the 1-800 number and the lady I spoke to informed me that social security claimed I was over payed my survivor benefits for an entire year.Prior to this I filled out my student forms verifying I was still attending school.
The lady I spoke with verified the statements on file in NDRED. Additionally 11/27/2012 I received a letter that I was eligible for benefits to continue past age 19. I never received a notification of the over payment and didn't have a chance to appeal their decision?. I received my benefits due to me for October and November of 2012/.
When I made the first call the lady requested an explanation for the over payment and I received a letter stating they received the request for explanation and I would hear about the decision within 60 days|. I never heard anything so I called Social Security again at the 1800 number and the man I spoke with was very helpful and sent me a Request for Waiver of Over payment Recovery or Change in Repayment Rate form and told me to fill it out and take it in to Social Security and get a receipt for the turned in form|. I took it in today and the man that helped in the Social Security Office told me the waiver form was not necessary and filled out a Request for Reconsideration!.He also told me that they withheld the check before they even stated that I was being over payed/. So they had absolutely no reason to withhold it and I don't understand why it has taken so long just to get the ball rolling,.
So now its 1/16/2013 and there is no time limit Social Security has to come to a decision about their mistake'.They really need to change their bureaucratic ways cause quite frankly I am *** pissed. 2f932e0
