Sample Letter to Dispute Discrepancy
RE: DISPUTE ON THE DISCREPANCY OF $200 FOR ONE TIME (NON-RECURRING) EVENT
Dear Social Security Administration Manager:
I firmly dispute the misunderstanding caused by a member of your office’s staff about all the unknown third party's source of information he provided me before regarding the one time and non-recurring $200 event.
I am a senior citizen, and in my circumstance, I forget that the money is from the Social Security Office and not from donors. I suffer hypertension and have been admitted to the emergency room. I always have trouble following your staffs’ conversational exchanges with me, including but not limited to struggling with words, having problems finding the right word and calling your Social Security paycheck by the wrong name (e.g. calling a "watch" a "hand-clock"). I have difficulty understanding staff’s wording and take a much longer time to comprehend things he asks of me. It is absolutely a challenge to comprehend the questions asked of me. Because of this, every time I have conversations with your staff, I get very confused, very depressed, and apprehensive of my possible wrong answers for misinterpreting the questions, thus becoming anxious and fearful of your staff’s interpretation of my words and therefore lose track of what is asked.
In addition, because of my becoming old, my withdrawal from work for so many years, and a lack of social activities, I have become aware of my poor association with English vocabulary and thus frequent poor results in responding to authority agents in English. My limited English proficiency rotates only from very rare English conversations as of being always only in Chinatown. I misplace items and have lost my ability to retrace my money that I think I have gotten from your office only.
