SSI Benefit Discontinuance And Now An Overpayment Demand?

After receiving a Supplement Security Income (SSI) benefit discontinuance notice, our clients frequently encounter the issue of an overpayment demand as well. The Social Security Administration (SSA) usually seeks overpayment from an SSI recipient when the SSA discontinues the benefit.

The SSI benefit may have been discontinued for a number of reasons, including the receipt of a gift, inheritance or converting an exempt asset into a nonexempt asset. We can help before the SSI benefit is discontinued, and it is often possible to avoid the discontinuance altogether. However, when an SSI discontinuance occurs, then an overpayment by the SSA to the recipient is a common event.
