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. George Roth's wages were discovered 5 /14/93 from an employer's
report. George Roth admitted on a signed SSA-795 that they knew to report but did
not because they thought their SSI checks would stop. We are curtailing fraud development
because George 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. Jean Bleu was overpaid because they reported their
spouse's wages 6 weeks after they started. Jean Bleu stated on the waiver request
that it was not their fault because their spouse concealed income from them and they
reported their spouse's employment as soon as they found out about it.
