Received overpayment letter in the amount of 30k
« on: June 22, 2017, 05:09:34 PM »
hi everyone, dealing with a letter I received stating an overpayment from SSDI.  I contacted them but will need to fill out an appeal form - advice appreciated.  to make a long story short I had a worker comp case resulting from a work related accident.  i applied for SSDi and when approved they made a back payment about half of what they say i now owe.  while getting wc, I started receiving ssdi that was prorated to equal the 80% of gross monthy income pre disability.  my wc atty and the wc ins supplied ssa with the figures so I believed (still do) they did what they were supposed to.  a couple yrs in, the wc settled and I no longer received bi weekly payment but rather a settlement that was  spread over my remaining life time.  this = out to a few hundred per month until my estimated time of death so there was little to no impact to SSDi.  After case settled all paperwork was sent to ssa showing settlement etc and ssa made adjustment to my monthly amt increasing it to what it should be per mnth.  now receive this letter about owing monies that seems impossible but worried none the less because its just over 30k and I of course dont have that on hand.

Anyone file appeal?  whats the process like and will they send how they came up with that amt.  I tries to call former wc atty but its been about 4 yrs and they dont seem to think its their problem

Try searching for a workers compensation forum online and ask them. There are forums that have people posting who also get SSDI.

Does anyone know how this process works i will appeal of course but due to a tbi i have cognitive difficulties so hard dealing with a bunch of paperwork and timelines.  will the ssa have to show me there calculations.  i am dealing with a bunch of other stuff already so this is more than i can handle right now

I'd start here:

You can hire an attorney, including your prior one, but they'll expect a retainer.

Hopefully jsm will see your thread.
