If there are any overpayments to either member of an eligible couple for which recovery
has not been waived, they should be considered in computing the underpaid amount.
This includes any overpayment resulting from direct deposit into a joint account.
NOTE: When direct payment of authorized representative fees will be paid by SSA and there
is a prior collectible overpayment on the record, the priority of payment order is:
Direct payment of Representative Fee
Recovery of Prior Overpayment
See GN 03920.000, GN 03930.000 and GN 03940.000 for payment instructions.
