mine says overpayment. and gives the first(the starting) week and the ending week. and the total overpayment for that interval.
and it does it in 2 letters, splitting the weeks between March and August, for some unknown reason.

It's a possibility at least for me, that the agency removed those 13 weeks of regular UI and replaced them with the balance of first year EUC. They then realized that these last 4-6 weeks, I would've been drawing EB. But I hadn't been providing them with my work search records, as required for EB. So maybe they're trying to collect that back or have me prove that I was looking for work those weeks. I hope that's case and that would mean I'm still entitled to another, oh, 13 weeks of EB.
BUTTTT at teh same time
EB requires u to keep records
BUTTTTTT they dont check every record?
i cant imagine all 40,000 people who are affected would have to come in ALL AT ONCE with 6-13 weeks worth of records???? THATD BE A LOGISTICAL NIGHTMARE!!!!
maybe the letters were sent out after they ran the program which DETECTED WHO WAS OVERPAYED
BUT not before they SWITCHED OUT THOSE WEEKS for Tier and EB weeks?????

STILL MAKES NO SENSE as i really was overpaid like $3120 and it says i owe about $1500? WHAT A MESS???? IT DOESNT ADD UP NO MATTER WHAT!

OK,
you're collecting your tier 3 (not sure how many weeks you had), but if it ends the 2nd week of Nov. you will start to collect tier 4 until that is over with.
( 3 weeks being the min.- 6 weeks being the max)
Then if you qualify you should be able to get your EB until that ends or your year is up.
EB is state money, so if our state of NC is still triggered on it won't end when the EUC program is set to end Nov 27th.

It says sort of both. It tells me I was overpaid for the weeks of this past month. But the first line says I was "receiving benefits to which I was not entitled."

The $1790.00 overpayment adds up to the entire amount for those weeks that say I was overpaid. So, they're basically insisting that for the last month, I shouldn't have been drawing unemployment...which leads me to think that...since those weeks are supposed to be EB and I obviously haven't been called in to prove that I was looking for work those weeks, that maybe that's why they want that money back. Which is ridiculous.

AGAIN someone posted the link from NC ESC site where it LOOKS like they are SUPPOSED to NOT deduct weekly amounts< BUT switch the wrongly paid EU weeks with EUC AND EB weeks? BUT the letter indicates teh opposite????
Yeah, that link was put on the page just yesterday morning!
It's very contadictory to what the letters say!

EB says this

You must keep a written record of your work search and present the written record to the Commission upon request.

if they havent REQUESTED the work search, HOW can they withold it if you have allready filed?

Correct, but for EB, it's a requirement that you go down to the office and present them with your completed work search records each week in order to collect. That's just EB. They really should waive those weeks and not have all these people come down there...but who knows.

As far as I know and heard from this thread...it goes for everyone that collects EB.
