Re: Vic Tum, SSN 123-45-6789

Dear Sir,

The Social Security Administration has removed from my retirement benefit check the amount of 15% under the Treasury Offset Program (TOP). This offset was sent to the IRS.

This is a hardship for me. This check is all I have to live on. I do not have any other income or monies. My retirement check is $1000 a month and the amount of the offset is $150 a month.

I request that the 15% offset be waived and/or removed due to hardship.
