When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor
benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.
Now, Social Security claims it overpaid someone in the Grice family — it’s not sure who — in 1977. After 37 years of silence, four years
after Sadie Grice died, the government is coming after her daughter. Why the feds chose to take Mary’s money, rather than her surviving siblings’,
is a mystery.
this action makes no sense.... all 5 kids receiving 'Survivor Benefits' have separate Social Security Accounts...As did the Surviving Mother-Wife to
the deceased Father (upon whose account all the survivor benefit $$ are based)
In any case, Mary is being targeted as a victim...either all of the children share in being overpaid or none
Sadie, the mother, was only acting as an Agent for the siblings... the only way Sadie could be held responsible for receiving social security
overpayments is IF she gave fraudulent claims to the SSA so as to claim more payments than she deserved
in every instance the 5 siblings are not responsible for any alleged 'overpayments'..
the 5 children were always 'dependents'/ 'under age'
It sounds more like somebody in the SSA is trying to cover-up errors made years earlier, payout errors which are not recoverable (because the
recipients are deceased & the SSA accounts are then closed)
I had some 9 years of social security Survivor Benefits accrue in a trust fund, unknown to myself...so I have some knowledge of how SSA & survivor
benefits are handled... It is too bad that the Mother had to use those small survivor checks to support the family from month-to-month
I know that the SSA garnishment/seizure for supposed 'debt' some 47 years old- will be dropped cold, even if it takes a Congressman or Senator to
petition an investigation for this victim of bureaucry
