Question Waiver of overpayment

I apparently owe the NC-ESC for an overpayment and I am trying to figure out what to do. The letter mentions that I can petition to have it waivered but doesn't tell me how to do that or whats involved. Do I need to go through my local office, call raliegh, or can it be done online. I can't find info on a waiver of overpayment.

Of course, they won't tell you how to go about it. You've got to figure that out for yourself.

Write to the address on your notice stating you are requesting a waiver due to financial hardship. Do not do this online. Explain your circumstances clearly.

On what grounds did they say you had an overpayment? Did you investigate to see if they are correct?

According to someone I talked to in Raleigh I need to take the letter I received and write on the bottom that I request a waiver of overpayment and then sign it and fax it to a number she gave me. I hope this works.

Be sure you cite a valid reason. Financial hardship.

... and be prepared to document that financial hardship when they ask -- because they will.

I put financial hardship down and I will try to be ready to document whatever they ask, I know there is a very good chance that I will not get the waiver but this is worth a try because trying to come up with this money when my benefits have ended and I still haven't found a job really will be a financial hardship.
Thanks for all the help.

It's definitely worth a try! Some states will set up a schedule of modest payments, some delay repayment until you are re-employed, others can waive repayment completely after a period of time. Good luck!

I know in NJ they have guidelines for payback on certain amounts but I'm sure if there are financial hardships they take those into consideration. A friend of mine had an overpayment of 5k from NJUI. An employer challenged his UI after about 3 months. My buddy had went back to work and just ignored the hearing date. Obviously the employer won and my buddy didnt appeal. Not more than a few weeks later my buddy was laid off, lost his house pretty much in the same week. He had to go fill out an IRS form that determines what you can afford to pay back. with his monthly bills, what they were and all of his assets. Well he had nothing and couldnt even pay for his bills. The form showed NJUI that he can't pay. He ended up returning to work about a year later and initiated a payment plan with NJUI so he wouldnt run into any problems in the future

u mention the employer challenged his MI determination After 3 Months. I was under the impression that any party has 10 Days to appeal a determination in NJ before it becomes final and cannot be appealed unless the party can show good cause for the late filing. I read this on a nj Determination. So I'm wondering how your friend's employer was able to appeal After 3 Months?
