Clawback $82,970.80 on Disability

I just got a letter on 10/24/2023. They say they over paid me from July 2019 through September 2023. I sent several forms in reporting my income. I thought I still qualified because they were still paying me. They did a clawback twice before and suspended my payments until it was paid back and then continued to pay me. It makes no sense. If I was earning too much in the same job twice before, why would they continue to pay me if I no longer qualified because I earned too much. Please help me if you can. Thank you.

Thank you for posting.  Sharing your story helps others understand they are not alone.  And it helps us pressure the Congress to fix these situations immediately.  I don’t think anyone has ever gathered all these stories together in one place so people in power can see the impact of this cruel and inept Social Security bureaucracy.

Here’s what we are aiming for — as fast as possible!

  1. Complete Moratorium on Clawbacks
  2. Reinstatement of all suspended benefits
  3. An independent hearing on EACH case before any demands or cuts
  4. An 18-month Statute of Limitations on Clawbacks

Sharing YOUR story helps us help others!  Thank you!

PS.  Here’s what Janet Yellen said when she was sworn in as Treasury Secretary.  Let’s hold her to her word!

“Economics isn’t just something you find in a textbook. It can be a potent tool to right past wrongs and improve people’s lives. That’s why so many of Treasury’s 84,000 public servants joined the Department. Today, I am proud to be one of them.”
