Overpayment of Unemployment Compensation?

By: Linda M. Lopez, Esq.

Recipients of unemployment compensation in New Jersey have recently seen an increase in reversals by the state of an employee's eligibility for benefits. If the state reverses its original decision and now finds an employee ineligible for benefits, that employee will likely be required to repay the benefits he or she has already received. If you have received a notice stating that you have received an overpayment of benefits and are required to repay it to the state, you must act quickly to file an appeal. Under the law, you have the right to file an appeal of that decision within seven calendar days after delivery or within ten calendar days after the mailing of the determination.

If you have received an overpayment or have questions about this law, contact the law firm of Winegar, Wilhelm, Glynn & Roemersma to speak with one of our experienced attorneys.

THE FOREGOING IS INTENDED TO BE A GENERAL DISCUSSION OF THE LAW AND IS NOT INTENDED TO BE CONSTRUED AS LEGAL ADVICE. IF YOU HAVE A SPECIFIC QUESTION, PLEASE CONTACT OUR OFFICE AND SPEAK WITH AN ATTORNEY.
