Is My Social Security Overpayment Dischargeable in Bankruptcy?

Social security overpayments are dischargeable in Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy so long as no fraud was engaged in when the overpayment occurred.

But, if you just received a check in the mail and used it, how do you know if the SSA or State of Michigan might thing you’ve engaged in fraud?
