It appears two of the children of a man once declared legally dead will not have to pay the Social Security Administration back for benefits they received. The Courier reports the federal agency has backed off their demands for repayment from two of Donald Miller’s children. Miller’s ex-wife is currently trying to get a similar waiver for herself and her oldest daughter.
Miller was declared legally dead in 1994 after he disappeared, before turning up in Ohio again in 2005. Because of the ruling, his wife and children were granted his social security benefits. Robin Miller says the Social Security Administration had asked for a repayment of more than $47,000 – even though the benefits paid out were less than $30,000. The administration has refused to comment on why that is.
