Who needs a Form SSA 632-BK?
The person who has been overpaid by the Social Security Administration (SSA) for a reason and accepted this fact should fill out the Request for Waiver of Overpayment or Change in Repayment Rate (SSA 632-BK) in case when they cannot afford to pay overpayment back at the rate that was mentioned in the SSA notice. Another reason to complete the SSA 632-BK is your conviction that the overpayment was not your fault, and you are not able to reimburse it.
What is Form SSA 632-BK for?
The Social Security Administration uses answers that you give in this form to decide if they can waive collection of the overpayment or change the monthly amount you must pay them back each month. You can be overpaid receiving financial assistance in one of the following programs:
- Disability Benefits;
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program;
- Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program.
The best way to prevent future overpayments is reporting all changes in financial, marital, or living situation to the SSA office in timely manner.
Is Form SSA 632-BK accompanied by other forms?
In the case you agree that the overpayment occurred, you do not need to fill out additional forms. You can ask for an inverse payments delay and changes in monthly payments via Form SSA 632-BK. But if you do not acknowledge that the overpayment happened, or do not agree with the amount reported by the SSA, you should use the SSA-561-U2 for appeal. Remember that the SSA may request proof of your income and expenses.
