Clark v. Astrue update

Clark v. Astrue update

Over the last couple of weeks, I have been getting alot of calls regarding letters people have received from SSA regarding the “Clark v. Astrue” Settlement.

For those of you potentially affected by the “Clark v. Astrue” settlement, please understand a few things:

1. SSA has to make sure you are actually a part of the class.
If you received a letter letting you that you ‘may’ be a part of the class, you still need to give SSA time to make an actual determination that you are one of the affected members of the Class.

2. if they determine if you are affected, SSA has to decide if you are entitled to any money.
It’s important for SSA to make the determination that you are entitled to any money as a result of being a class member.

3. SSA has to determine how much money you are entitled.
This part is probably the trickiest.  SSA has to actually go back and calculate the money you may be owed.

4. SSA has to determine if they have to reimburse you any overpayments.  
If SSA determined you were overpaid, they will probably have to go and determine if they erroneously took money from you.

I know that a lot of you are anxious but this process is not designed to keep you down or keep you from receiving what you are entitled to receive.  However, this process takes time.  Keep in mind, the class is approximately 140,000 so SSA is going to everything to make sure they are processing this correctly.  I know the wait is frustrating but be patient.

The one thing I have consistently told everyone is one simple phrase:
“You WANT the government to get this right!”

      The Social Security Administration will notify you in writing about the amount you will receive (if you are eligible to receive anything at all).

    Hi, my name Hector. I received the first letter from clark vs. astrue but i still havn’t recieved the second. My benefits were taking away from me in 2009 for a probation violation. I’m just curious on how long is going to take for that second determination letter. Thanks, Hector!

    I received a check from the lawsuit and my brother and I went nurmerous times to the local SS office to make sure this was correct. I was threaten to have my check stopped because of a warrant. Went to court and showed that it was not me that had the warrant. Because of this we went and told them that maybe the check should not have been sent to me. I first received a letter saying that I had to give the check back. I did, four days later they called me to pick up the check because it was mine to keep. All this happened in late May and June , just recently I received a letter saying it was a mistake to send money back. I don’t have all of it. Sent them a letter with dates of everything I did to make sure I could spend it and a check of the unspent portion. I don’t have the full amount, so I am waiting to see if they will stop my benefits or I have to pay them back in payments. I did everything in my power to make sure this money was mine to spend. What can I do.
