Disability Insurance: SSA Could Do More to Prevent Overpayments or Incorrect Waivers to Beneficiaries
Daniel Bertoni (au)
The Social Security Administrationńˇ╗s (SSAńˇ╗s) Disability Insurance (DI) program provides cash benefits to workers with disabilities. Per program rules, SSA requires that beneficiaries promptly report their work activity -- including starting a job or a change in wages -- as failure to do so may result in an overpayment that must be repaid. In FY 2014, SSA identified $1.3 billion in DI benefit overpayments. Avoiding overpayments is imperative as they pose a burden for beneficiaries who must repay excess benefits and they result in lost taxpayer dollars if they are not repaid or are waived by SSA. This report examines (1) the extent of work-related DI overpayments and waivers; (2) how SSAńˇ╗s handling of work activity reported by beneficiaries prevents overpayments; and (3) how SSA ensures appropriate decisions are made to waive overpayments. Table and figures. This is a print on demand report.
