1915.When is an individual “without fault” in receiving an overpayment?

“Without fault” means that the overpayment did not result from your lack of care, such as:

  1. Furnishing full and accurate information affecting basic rights to benefit payment;

  2. Complying with annual earnings and other reporting requirements; and

  3. Returning checks believed not due.

Even if we caused the overpayment, you must show that you are without fault.
