Q. If I file for bankruptcy can that clear a debt for an overpayment for the social security administration?
A: Great Question!! An overpayment of social security benefits can be discharged in bankruptcy. Since it is a general unsecured nonpriority debt. It just happens to be owed to the government. But, the Social Security Administration (SSA) can object  if it determines that the overpayment was the result of fraud on your part.
