There is a two prong test for a waiver: (1) where you at fault in causing the overpayment and (2) can you afford to pay it back.
In your case, you were a minor when the overpayment occurred so I cannot see that you will be held to be at fault. Since you have no income, you probably can satisfy the test of not being able to pay it back.
You may be able to get assistance from Legal Aid in your area.See question
She applied for disability and was denied because my father makes too much money. How do I go about helping her get her disability and apply for Medicare?
You said she was denied because her husband makes too much money. If she can show they are separated his income should not disqualify her for SSI which is a welfare disability program. As such if they are together then his income will be deemed available to her and will disqualify her.See question
I am currently engaged and the only thing keeping us from getting married is that my Medical and Medicare will get taken away. I am a heart and kidney transplant so my expenses are very high and my France's work insurance doesn't cover my doctors.
I guess you could be getting both Medicare and Medicaid. As we know Medicare does not provide 100% coverage. Especially, it is a problem when a claimant has expensive prescriptions and that is why you may need Medicaid. While Medicare is not means-tested Medicaid is means-tested meaning it is a welfare benefit. Thus, you could lose the Medicaid by getting married because your spouse's benefits will be deemed available to you -- when you get married.See question

I agree with my colleagues on this one. You and your friend should both go to the local office to find out that happened to his benefits. You should check for any notices your friend may have missed.See question

SSI is essentially welfare disability and it employs an income test. Any income the family receives can potentially reduce the SSI your spouse receives. Of course, this would be different if she was receiving Social Security Disability which does not have an income test.See question
My landlord claims to have found pot when coming in for a random inspection (while we werent at the house) so of Im charged for this in some way what exact record will be on my social security.
You would not lose your Social Security Disability unless you were incarcerated more than 30 days for this matter.See question
My sister is disabled due to a brain aneurysm and she has memory loss and unable to do some day to day things. She lived in a house she owned that had black mold in it and roof was caving on so the city condemned it. She also owes thousand of doll...
If the house has no value, then it would not disqualify her for SSI. If it has value, then it should be sold for its value. Once the proceeds are spent for reasonable expense then your sister can re-apply for SSI. Perhaps she can get a Legal Aid Lawyer to handle this. If not contact a real estate lawyer.See question
Receive an substantial settlement while I was receiving SIS. Got a letter that SSI over paid me. I sent the requested about. Now they say I owe $80,000. I no longer have SIS benefits. They cut me off although I still suffer from my disability in t...
SSI is welfare disability and only allows you to have $2,000 in cash. It appears you had a settlement that exceeded the $2,000 resource limit. You did not indicate how long you were on SSI. You would need to have been on SSI a long time to accumulate an $80,000 over payment. You need to provide this information.See question
i married someone with undissolved domestic partnership. i did not know of the existence of such partneship at the time of our wedding.
If you had a legal marriage and the other relationship was not a legal marriage, you should not have a problem.See question
Can you change your mind on the benefits you receive if you do so in the first 12 months of receiving benefits? My understanding is if I take my own retirement benefit at age 66, the amount will not increase (except for cost of living increases)....
I have found that Mr. Pont is correct. If you go to your local Social Security office, they will assist you in getting the highest benefit.See question
