The agency recommended waiver of the recovery of an overpayment to the widow of Caesar Cooper resulting from erroneous annuity payments made under section 4 of Public Law 92-425. The overpayment was not for consideration for waiver pursuant to 10 U.S.C. 1453, as recommended, since that section was not applicable to section 4 of Public Law 92-425. However, the collection activity may be terminated in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Claims Collection Act of 1966 upon determination by the appropriate authorities of the debtor's inability to pay.
