Social Security Task Force
Fact Sheet Overpayment Withholding Increase
Social Security beneficiaries can be overpaid for any number of reasons: even if they report all changes promptly to SSA, it can take the agency several months to act on the report and an overpayment can result. SSA collects overpayments by withholding 100% of Social Security benefits until they are paid off; if the beneficiary requests a different rate it is generally granted as long as the overpayment is paid off within 36 months.
