 The young lady has a right to file an appeal. First, I would request a copy of her previous history with Social Security. Then I would encourage her to set an appointment with Social Security for later in the month. Since you are in the Springs, I can help you prepare your appeal. What you need to know first, however, is for what quarters or years are they saying she is overpaid. 
For a while Jeff Henderson was doing appeals through the Independence Center but about the time you got sick Jeff left the center. I haven't checked their web site to see how they are coming along as far as replacing him. You mgiht do that yourself. Also, I would like to hear from you directly. Call me at (719) 232-7663. I sp4end a lot of time going back and forth between here and Pueblo but I w\really want to talk with you further and see your documentation in order to help you and her plan an appeal.

With no names needing to be mentioned here, I'm  
asking for help or leads on how you would proceed  
in dealing with SSI and Social Security, when they  
have just told a young adult here in the springs  
that she must pay back something like $14,000.  
This young adult recently found out her extended  
family bought her savings bonds (worth $1700) when  
she was a child. She's an adult now and has been  
given them, and mentioned them to Social Security  
at some point when asked of such things. Those  
bonds, plus a recent FAFSA payment into her  
account to pay for her semester, supposedly put  
her a couple hundred over the limit, and now they  
are telling this young adult that she must pay  
back $14,0000. Her only income thus far has ever  
been SSI, she hasn't yet had a paying job and is  
currently a full-time college student. They've  
been sending her in circles not giving any answers  
in person, at all, and requesting more and more  
paperwork and past records of her bank account. On  
top of that 2 different local reps have told her  
the limit was 2 different amounts. One said $2k,  
and 1 said $3k. Now this latest assessment says  
she must simply pay back $14k. Not to mention the  
fact that they stopped paying her her monthly  
check a couple months ago. Can anyone offer some  
serious help here? This seems ludicrous. If you  
can help, please contact me off-list. Thanks. 
Blessings to Your Efforts!
