Social Security Administration regained $8.1B of $17B in overpayments

The Office of the Inspector General revealed the Social Security Administration overpaid disability benefit recipients during the period of October 2003 to February 2014 by nearly $17 billion, $8.1 billion of which was regained, according to Townhall.com on June 7.

According to the report, some of the payments were handed out to people who were in prison, those who had already passed away, or those who made too much to qualify.
