An Independent View of Social Security
Statute of Limitations
About 11 years ago I applied for social security benefits at age 62. A few weeks ago I received a letter informing me that I have been overpaid because of a mistake on benefits I was due and as a result I owe Social Security over 11, 000 dollars and my benefits will be stopped for about 18 months so they can get it back.
Is there a statute of limitations for the SS to collect from their error.
Also, I hve paid income tax on 85 percent of the payments or some 3,000. on this money they say should not have been paid.
They said I can appeal, buy that is just having another social security employee review.
Is there any recourse to all this?
Thanks for any help. Lynn
