Q. Hi, I have to give back money to Social Security. It is money that I don't have. I feel it's not my fault.
A: You have a few options here. If you do not think you were overpaid, you can request a reconsideration of the determination. If instead, which it sounds like here, you believe you may have been overpaid, but it is not your fault, you can ask for a waiver of the overpayment and complete SSA Form 632, Request for Waiver of Overpayment Recovery. You also have the option of asking both for a reconsideration and waiver. The important thing is that you take timely action on this matter. If you worked with an attorney on your previously approved claim, I recommend reaching out to the same.
Q. how hard is it to collect ssdi at 62
A: Assuming you can establish that you do have severe medical conditions, one hurdle you will need to get over is proving that you cannot do your past relevant work. Unlike for a younger individual, once that is established, the kinds of jobs Social Security Administration will tell you to go get trained in now are narrowed. It is impossible to completely answer your question without more detail, but age does help.
