SEC. 14219. ELIMINATION OF STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS APPLICABLE TO
                            COLLECTION OF DEBT BY ADMINISTRATIVE
                            OFFSET.

    (a) Elimination.--Section 3716(e) of title 31, United States Code,
is amended to read as follows:
    ``(e)(1) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, regulation, or
administrative limitation, no limitation on the period within which an
offset may be initiated or taken pursuant to this section shall be
effective.

Would you think that you would have to pay overpayment of survivor benefits your now deceased mother received as a benefit from your deceased father?

It gets confusing.

When Grice (Mary) was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice (her mother) got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.

Now, Social Security claims it overpaid someone in the Grice family — it’s not sure who — in 1977. After 37 years of silence, four years after Sadie Grice (the mother) died, the government is coming after her daughter. Why the feds chose to take Mary’s money, rather than her surviving siblings’, is a mystery.

I'm wondering if this overpayment repeal of statute of limitations would work in reverse. Would that pertain to the limitations on the payment of debt as well as the collection of debt.

Maybe my gg-grandfather did not place his well properly on the homestead. Does that mean, I am liable?

I think people are paid to read these things. This seems like a pretty big deal. While we were all watching them grab food from kids, they decided to delete the statute of limitations (10 years) retroactively?

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
