The reach of the government arm is a long one.

Although you have an agreement with the Social Security Administration, it was the United States Treasury that would have issued a refund.  The computers wouldn't allow the refund to issue because of the debt owed.

Verify with your local office of SSA https://secure.ssa.gov/apps6z/FOLO/fo001.jsp that the refund was applied to your repayment plan, and that you are now closer to paying off that overpayment.

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.
