Example 1:Nina Pauling is dually-entitled to a retirement benefit of $260.30 and a widow's benefit
of $120.50. She currently receives $348.00 (MPA) after deduction for the $31.90 SMI
premium. Her husband had been overpaid $2,000 before he died, and an overpayment of
$1,745 is still outstanding on this record. Since Mrs. Pauling's liability is limited
to the benefit she receives on the overpayment record (GN 02205.001), a withholding of $120.00 (the full widow's benefit payable after rounding) and
a reduction of her payment to $228.00 is proposed in the initial overpayment notice.
Example 2:Susan Venture, a current D beneficiary ineligible for payment because of her earnings,
has an outstanding debt of $1,500. She requested waiver of recovery and following
a personal conference decision to deny her waiver, she agreed to repay the debt in
$50 monthly installments. Billing was initiated in 8/87. Mrs. Venture reports that
she is no longer working and D benefits are payable effective 1/89. Withhold benefits
due beginning 1/89 to recover her debt balance of $650.00 ($1,500 minus the $850 8/87-
12/88 installment payments).
