What If My Former Employer Appeals And The Decision Is Made In Its Favor?

If you do not appeal that decision within 21 calendar days, it will become final and you will be asked to pay back the benefits you received. The law provides several options for repayment: a repayment schedule; offset from present or future benefits; or waiver of the overpayment. After the Referee's decision becomes final, the Administrator will advise you of the amount of the overpayment and the various methods of repayment. If the overpayment is not waived and recoupment from future benefits is not sufficient to repay the overpayment, the Administrator will insist upon a repayment schedule. If you fail to comply with the repayment schedule, the Administrator may attach your wages when you go back to work.
