Q) Are you able to receive unemployment while your on a payment plan for over payment?
A) Yes, you may be able to receive unemployment benefits while you are on a payment plan for an overpayment. However, the specific rules vary from state to state. You should contact your state’s unemployment office to inquire about your eligibility.
Here are some things to keep in mind:
- You may be eligible for unemployment benefits even if you owe money to the state for an overpayment.
- The amount of benefits you receive may be reduced if you owe money to the state.
- You may be required to repay your overpayment before you can receive any additional benefits.
If you are unsure whether you are eligible for unemployment benefits, you should contact your state’s unemployment office for more information.
For some states, if you are still requesting unemployment benefits, you can continue to submit biweekly payment requests. Your State unemployment office will apply each eligible payment toward reducing your overpayment. You must repay all of your overpayment before you can be paid further benefits. Additional payments should be mailed to your state unemployment office.
