SSD Overpayment

Definition - What does SSD Overpayment mean?

Social Security Disability (SSD) overpayment is a term used by the Social Security Administration (SSA) to refer to an excessive payment made to a Social Security Disability benefactor that the benefactor was not entitled to receive. The SSA sends a notice to the benefactor whenever an SSD overpayment occurs.

Justipedia explains SSD Overpayment

The Social Security Administration (SSA) occasionally sends a payment to a benefactor that exceeds the amount that the benefactor is entitled to receive. In such cases, the benefactor receives a Notice of Overpayment from the SSA. The notice contains information regarding why the benefactor has been overpaid and how the benefactor can pay the SSA back. A benefactor who believes that they have not been overpaid can request that the SSA reconsider their decision by filing a "Request for Reconsideration" form. A benefactor who agrees that an overpayment was made but can't pay the amount back or can't pay at the rate mentioned can request that the SSA waive the amount by filing a "Request for Waiver of Overpayment Recovery or Change in Repayment Rate" form.
