How The Incorrect Payment Happened

We deposited $ (1) into (2) bank account at (3) after (4) death on (5) . This money was not due (6) , because no check is due for the month of death or for later months. In this case, we did not learn about the death in time to stop the payment from being incorrectly deposited into the bank account.

We were unable to recover all of the incorrectly paid money from the joint account. Since you withdrew $ (7) from the account, you owe this amount to us.

 

How To Pay Us Back

You should send us a check or money order for $ (8) , the amount you withdrew from the bank account. Make your check or money order out to the Social Security Administration.
