These are examples of penalty decisions and are not complete case examples.
Recipient: George Roth, XXX-XX-XXXX AI
Decision: Assess a penalty of $25.00 for the period 10/14/91 - 5 /14/93.
Reason: Willful failure to report. Mr. Roth's wages were discovered 5 /14/93 from an employer's
report. He admitted on a signed SSA-795 that he knew to report but did not because
he thought his SSI checks would stop. We are curtailing fraud development because
Mr. Roth is age 71 and has refunded the overpayment.
Recipient: Jean Bleu, XXX-XX-XXXX DI
Decision: No Penalty.
Reason: Without fault met for overpayment. Ms. Bleu was overpaid because she reported her
husband's wages 6 weeks after they started. She stated on her waiver request that
it was not her fault because her husband concealed income from her and she reported
his employment as soon as she found out about it.
