The letters are coming from the Office of Central Operations

They are withholding "overpaid social security benefits". I have been receiving benefits since 1967! The cuts are very large.

I am told to contact the Inspector General's Fraud Hotline, if I have questions. Fraud?

What's going on? Has anyone else received any of these letters.

Well, they are not asking for money or property. They did not ask for any identifying numbers and you got a letter not a phone call. You can always call the regular SSA phone line for an explanation. Have your letter with you when you call so they can get any information they need off of it. If it is a fraud, they may have you send it in to them.

Have you read the entire letter for any type of explanation? Only ask because I used to answer questions on the IRS line and many did not find the info on the second page or read the whole thing.

The primary responsibilities handled by the Office of Central Operations include maintainng and establishing the necessary records used in making decisions on Social Security Disability claims and appeals. The data compiled by the Office of Central Operations is used to help determine whether a Social Security Disability claim should be approved or denied. It is also used to determine if any changes should be made to Social Security Disability benefits; including raising, lowering, continuing or stopping.

The Office of Central Operations often helps with the collection of Social Security Disability benefits that have been overpaid. You can expect them to contact you if you have received Social Security Disability benefits to which you were not entitled. In such cases, you will receive a notice regarding how much you were overpaid, giving you some options regarding how you can take care of the matter.

The above is from the link!

52 years. And you are now in Denmark? I can think of all manner of reasons for an inquiry now. Did you timely file updates on your disability status over the years when asked?
