Should a Rep Payee Recoup SSI Overpayments from a Previous Rep Payee?

I am the new Representative Payee for a Supplemental Security Income (SSI) beneficiary.  The beneficiary was overpaid for over a year and now the Social Security Administration (SSA) is seeking repayment.  When and how should I pursue the previous Rep Payee for reimbursement?

This is not your responsibility.  The SSA will obtain the funds from the previous Rep Payee or it will reduce the SSI beneficiary's award until the funds are repaid.
