Repayment plans

If you received more unemployment benefits than you should have, we will work with you to create a re-payment plan.

If you don't follow the re-payment schedule, we may collect the overpayment plus any penalties and interest from your:

  • Current unemployment benefit payments
  • Future unemployment benefit payments ("offsets")
  • Wages ("wage garnishments")
  • State and federal tax refunds

We may also charge you with a crime.
