Grice v. Colvin
United States District Court for the District of Maryland
97 F. Supp. 3d 684 (2015)
The Social Security Administration (SSA) (defendant) determined that it had made overpayments of Social Security benefits to Mary Grice (plaintiff). To recoup the overpayments, the SSA took part of Grice’s tax refund. The SSA had sent notices about the overpayments and planned recoupment to Grice’s previous address despite sending Grice’s annual Social Security statements to her current address. Judicial review of SSA decisions was limited under 42 U.S.C. § 405(h), which prevented Grice from directly challenging the overpayment determination. However, Grice could challenge the SSA’s actions if she could present a legitimate constitutional claim against the SSA. Grice brought a constitutional claim against the SSA, claiming the SSA had violated her due-process rights by failing to provide adequate notice.
