There are appeal rights for any determination.  There are also payment plans that can be set up.

It is critical that one pay attention to any "overpayment notice" from the Social Security Administration (SSA).  There are deadlines to appeal the decision in that notice and if not exercised, you may lose them.  

Your benefits may stop completely until the overpayment is repaid so stay on top of this issue.

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
