You can request a hearing, or ‘appeal’ the Department’s decision on your denial if you do not agree with the decision. The decision you receive will include instructions on how to request a hearing. If you are not sure if you agree or not, you can call 1-877-345-3484 to speak to somebody who can provide more details and explain the next steps.
You must submit your appeal by the deadline noted in the decision. If you miss the appeal deadline, you might lose your right to appeal the decision to deny you benefits.
We will mail you a separate decision letting you know you have an overpayment. The overpayment decision will include instructions on how to request a hearing. If you request a hearing on an overpayment decision, the only issues that you can contest will be if you received the money or if we correctly calculated the overpayment.
