Case of the Week 11/10/06

County: Brooke
Client's Age: 77

Client's SS benefits have been affected by an overpayment SSA levied under the fairly recently-enacted fugitive felony provisions. Though the underlying warrant was an error that C corrected as soon as SSA notified him of the problem, SSA charged C with a significant overpayment of benefits, and notified him they would stop his check for several months for the repayment. We counseled client to appeal for a hardship waiver, and helped him identify evidence and arguments to support each element of the waiver for use in his appeal.
