Social Security Complaint - Overpayments
COLUMBUS, OHIO -- I got very sick at work and was told by my doctor that I was disable. The company hired a company in another state to get me on Social Security. I went to the Social Security office twice and asked what are my restrictions since I am on disability if I would go back to work. I was advised twice that I had no restricitons and could make as much as I wanted. Now they are telling me that I had restrictions and that they overpaid me and want back about $42,000. I sent in a waiver to advise them that I don't have any money to be able to pay them back and that I should not be liable do to doing what they advised. The problem is that they took five months to advise me that I don't have to pay them back but only on my pay. They only did part of the money that I receive from them and now I have to start over again to get the rest of the overpayment waived. They don't tell you that you can get restated first before they can do anything about the waiver and they don't do their whole job. They don't send out letters correctly either. You may get a letter stating that you are going to get a certain amount for a month or two and then get another letter stating you are not getting anymore. It gets so confusing that you don't know which way to go. I have been fighting with them since October, 2009 and still am today. I feel like I live in their office and filing something every day, week, etc. In the meantime my home is now in foreclosure do not having enough money to make my mortgage payments. What is a person to do? If you go into the office there are a lot of aliens who are getting Social Security, food stamps, they give them a home, car, job, and etc. Here we are fighting all the time to get help and no one wants to help us Americans who have worked and paid into everything. I don't feel that we should give them everything for nothing. Most of the aliens work for so many years then go back home being rich. They don't even have to pay taxes for 5 years. They don't pay for anything because our government hands them everything for free. Which puts us in debt and we lose everything that we have worked for. What are we suppose to do?
