An administrative adjustment is made in some cases when an overpayment is recovered
from current benefits paid to the beneficiary or another beneficiary entitled on the
same account. This is done to ensure SSA does not pay more in benefits than it would
have paid if action had been taken timely on the event causing the overpayment.
Generally, the amount adjusted administratively for each month is the difference between
the monthly benefit credited (MBC) and the sum of (a) amount offset to recover overpayment,
(b) amount actually paid to beneficiary and (c) tax amount based on amount actually
paid to beneficiary. (See GN 05010.230.)
