The Social Security Administration (SSA) may waive recovery of an overpayment if the person is without fault, and recovery would either defeat the purpose of the Social Security Act or be against equity and good conscience. A waiver is a permanent write-off of the overpayment, and SSA cannot subsequently collect the waived amount by any means. Generally, the overpaid person must request a waiver.
