I was overpaid when disabled in my twenties. The amount is about $7k. SS wanted 29K in error and contradicting a hearing judges order of January, 2000. Now, due to the help of a U.S. Senator's staff, there is a meeting of the minds and we are about to come to an agreement about how much is actually owed. That amount is about $6.500.00. I cannot afford to pay the entire amount right now.

I want to get a letter from SS stating the amount owed and setting up a repayment amount. Other criteria are

no interest
that there are no other amounts owing.

The Senator's office is very helpful. I want however to make sure that this agreement is iron clad and does not affect my social security payments when I retire IF I am making payments as agreed. Since SS cannot be counted upon to not make errors (and Senators' change) can you help me formulate this agreement or suggest pieces that will be necessary to avoid a future problem?

Thanks in advance.

Why not see an attorney who specializes in Social Security issues?
