A Florida woman received a letter saying she owes more than $237,000 in overpaid Social Security, making this the second time her benefits have been withheld.
The woman, Mamie Walker, 87, of Tampa Florida, says she has been unable to pay her bills or buy groceries for two months because of an error that has still not been explained to her.
All she has received is a letter from the Social Security Administration explaining that she can’t get her payments until September 2034 because she owes $237,000 for overpayments. according to WBTV News Channel 13.
She had her Social Security cut again in 2019 because she apparently owed $200,000 in student loans despite never going to college. After being approached by a researcher, they investigated the problem and recovered its benefits without any problems so far.
The administration said they would re-examine it and try to help her get the benefits back.
