If you received an overpayment notice, you may not have to pay it back. We encourage you to request an overpayment waiver if repayment of that overpayment would be a financial hardship. You can request a waiver by completing and submitting the waiver form that was included with your overpayment decision.
If you did not receive a waiver form with your decision, you can complete the form online:
- If you were overpaid state benefits – which is regular unemployment insurance – you should use the state waiver form.
- If you were overpaid federal benefits such as Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA), Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC), or Lost Wages Assistance (LWA), you should use this federal waiver form.
If you don't have your overpayment notice or need help figuring out which waiver to use, use our online Contact Us form or call 503-947-1995.
