Can bankruptcy clear an SSI overpayment?
yes alot of people dont know but yes it will
It means that you need to declare if you have ever been bankrupt. So if you have never been bankrupt you can say YES. However, if you have been bankrupt you need to say NO.
Improve you credit after Bankruptcy You don't need to "clear your name" after Bankruptcy, the stigma isn't what it used to be. There's a common myth that once dec…lared bankrupt you will be added to a "blacklist". There is no such blacklist. Under British law you will most likely be "clear" of you bankruptcy after 4 years, after which time you are allowed to apply for credit (if you want to), a good way to start is with a credit card with a low-limit. Use this card every month and clear the debt every pay-day, after a few months of this apply for another and then a few months later another. Make sure you pay them off. Keep this up for a maximum of 3 cards and for 1 year. This will improve your credit rating and you will probably be eligable for a loan, mortgage, etc. Be careful with your money though! Good luck, Moog.
No. You can file for bankruptcy for debts to be discharged. If you are being asked to repay the overpayment, that is a debt.Whether it can be discharged or not depends on whet…her the overpayment is due to something you did that amounts to fraud or misinformation you provided. If you are not at fault for the overpayment, it would usually be dischargeable. Consult a local bankruptcy lawyer, since the case law varies from one bankruptcy court to another.
You probably won't get any protection/relief for that. First, overpayments and amounts due to most governmental agencies are given a very high priority. Second…, and more importantly, is that under almost any instance of you receiving unemployment that you weren't supposed to, it is because of your filing a claim that you weren't alllowed to, or hiding your current employment of such, all of which to collect you swore something different, and is actually able to be pursued as a fraud and crime. The agency is giving you a break allowing you to make it good. Illegal acts, like fraudulently getting UI, are not going to get any protection by the BK court.
Answer It depends. Any overpayments or funds received by fraud from any state or federal agency cannot be discharged in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, or in a Chapter 1…3 bankruptcy filed on or after October 17, 2005. If the overpayment was not the result of fraud, it will be discharged. See the case of Lee v. Schweiker, 739 F.2d 870, 874 (3d Cir. 1984). SSA or any other government agency must prove, in the bankruptcy court, that the overpayment was the result of fraud. If fraud is proved, the overpayments will not be discharged in bankruptcy, and SSA can recover the overpayment from any future benefits. Please be advised that the SSA has the option of filing a civil suit if the amount is large enough, and can file federal criminal charges if the benefits were obtained fraudulently.
No, in fact it gives rise to a cause of action (in the same case that caused the garnishment) for fraud; or fraud of a fiduciary (depending on how the garnishment is handled).…
No. Under any type of bankruptcy scheme that you may have filed, traffic citations of any kind are not included and you are still legally obligated to pay them. Additionally…, fines and penalties will continue to be charged to you so this is a debt that you should prioritize.
You mean who can legally change an accurate reporting of the past, that is maintained in tightly controlled data systems and the public records of the courts? No one. …But you could fall for any number of scammers who prey on those who are foolish enough to think so.
Depends on the state. Texas allows overpayments to be requested from the person who received them although they knew they were not owed. If not, you can sue them. Check you st…ate laws.
If they were listed as a debt they may be cleared. The city would certainly make their claim against the debtor. It would be up to the judge to accept or deny the claim.
Yes, if you are disabled or have reached the age of 62 and the monthly amount is determined by the average hours and pay during your work history. Usually you get a statement …yearly.
Show the Social Security Administration that you have little or no income/assets and that you are either over age 65 or "permanently and totally" disabled as defined by Social… Security regulations.
Bankruptcies will stay on your credit report for 7 to 10 years. The only way to get it removed is to have the courthouse where it was filed remove it or the credit bureaus rem…ove it themselves. You can dispute it yourself to the credit bureaus or hire a credit repair service to do it for you.
SSI stands for Supplemental Security Income. It is a program that gives stipends to people who have low-income or those who are aged 65 and older, blind, or disabled.
If you were required to pay a security deposit prior to moving in, overpayment would not apply to that unless you have a verbal or written agreement with the landlord. Typical…ly, if you make an overpayment on rent, it would be applied to next month's balance.
