Wabanaki Legal News, Summer 2011
Pine Tree Legal has been able to help several tribal members who received Notices of Overpayments from Social Security. There are several things you can do about overpayments, but it is very important to take action quickly when you receive a Notice. It becomes harder for us to help if you wait. If you ignore the notice, SSA will start taking money out of your payments. Contacting SSA promptly can stop the collection of the overpayment until a decision is made by SSA.
