Although she and the NH were not living in the same household, Betty C was awarded
wife's benefits on the basis of statements she made on her RSI application. She said
that she was married to the NH and her allegation was corroborated by him when he
filed for benefits. Later, however, it was determined that they were not actually
married. Since the NH knew there was no marriage, the overpayment was caused by his
as well as her misstatement of pertinent facts. Propose recovery of the wife's overpayment
from the NH if Betty fails to refund the overpayment in 30 days.
