An 88-year-old retired factory worker from Woodbridge will continue receiving Social Security checks after an error nearly stopped them.
As News 12 reported, the Social Security Administration sent Rose Boisvert a letter saying that they were going to stop her benefits for one year, because of an error that led to her being overpaid.
Boisvert says that move would have forced her out of her apartment and into a nursing home.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal says he persuaded the Social Security Administration to waive a nearly $16,000 accidental overpayment, because it was not right to pay for the government's mistake.
Boisvert's daughter says her mom is grateful to News 12 Connecticut for telling her story and helping to get the problem fixed.
