We last paid Bert Abdi disability benefits August 2008. On November 3, 2008, we determined
and notified Mr. Abdi that he is overpaid $11,388 based on an April 2005 cessation
of his disability benefits. We no longer considered Mr. Abdi disabled and we should
have terminated his benefits effective April 2005.
On November 15, 2008, Mr. Abdi files an application for retirement benefits and requests
waiver for his overpayment. Before we make the waiver determination, we determine
that Mr. Abdi is entitled to a retirement benefit of $381 effective June 2008. Mr.
Abdi is due $1,905 in retirement benefits for June 2008 through October 2008, the
ending month of the retroactive period (i.e., October 2008, the month before we made
the overpayment determination and sent the notice). We use the additional money to
recalculate Mr. Abdi’s overpayment. His adjusted overpayment amount is $9,483 ($11,388
minus $1,905 equals $9,483). This is the amount we consider when we make our waiver
