    Default PUA overpayments

    My last balance was about $3,000 on the relia debit card. I received $4,800 and $2,000 at the same time which I didn’t apply for. I tried calling PUA but their line is busy. I worked part time but it’s under the table money and I never filed taxes. I haven’t been working anywhere since the pandemic. What is going to happen? How do I pay back the money?

    *THEY PAID ME $9,000 FOR JUNE AND JULY which totals $18,000.*
    For February to May are checks and went to my bank account not associated with relia debit card.

    UPDATE
    During the week of June 21, 2020, you filed a weekly certification(s) for PUA benefits. All the weeks filed during this certification were released for payment on 6/22/2020. Due to Department error, on 7/14/2020 you were issued duplicate payments of PUA and the corresponding Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation (FPUC) for the same week(s) which were certified during the week of June 21, 2020. As a result, you will be receiving a determination and overpayment notice in the near future.

    These notices will advise you how you can repay the duplicate amount. Please continue to check your dashboard for additional information.

    Are they asking me to pay back since March or the duplicated amount??? What do determination means? They will investigate me when it’s their fault???? I’ll be glad to pay them back ASAP because I didn’t spend it.

    They will probably catch it and attempt to withdraw it back is what i would assume, not really sure how this works...

    Girl, I honestly would say don't spend it in case they do come looking for it, but keep it for now. Does your state use a portal or site where it shows each payment? That might have some info. If you really want to get hold of them to ask, the key (at least here) has been to call repeatedly. Learn the number prompts and just keep trying until it lets you through.

    If your state is anything like mine, their PUA system is completely fucked. People who were still employed & never applied were getting sent debit cards loaded with thousands, there were tons of duplicate checks going out for $2100 apiece, people are collecting from both PUA and regular UI.... It's nuts. I doubt the state is going to get that money back, it's considered a "non-fraud" issue since it wasn't the recipients' faults, and hence they don't have any recourse except to sue in civil court.

    That's kind of why I lean towards not worrying about it too much. At worst, you'll probably get a letter demanding it back if/when they ever get around to figuring out who got extra payments, but it's not like you committed fraud. Just my 2 cents, I'm sure others will disagree

    I double checked that they did it twice! I did not realized that they did. They did it for June and July which I already spent some money from feb to now. It's not the right amount because I cashed out about $4k to pay my bills. I sent them an email and tried calling but line is busy so I am going to try to call them Monday morning. I had my friend ask her accountant and I am trying to consult with an employment attorney as well. I really don't want to owe any money. They paid me almost $20k which isn't the right amount. I emailed PUA 2 months ago and they never email me back. I asked the to check on my claim status.

    It does have the portal and I calculated it and the amount isn't correct. I am very worried as of now. I wouldn't mind paying it back. I heard there's a "waiver" or "appeal" if I do get the letter? What if I never get the letter? I heard it takes 30 days to receive the letter and 15 days to appeal? Please correct me. This is the first time I'm collecting money from the government. I am in PA by the way.

    Holy crap that's a shitload of money! That is a really big error on their part.

    What letter are you talking about? The hypothetical one asking for it back? If you want to pay the money back, I'd sit tight & wait for contact from the state. Just don't spend the extra is all you gotta do then.

    The other thing that someone else said is that they may simply try to pull it off your debit card. That happened here a few days ago, they literally drained all the money off some people's cards that they thought were claiming falsely. It took them 2 months to catch those people soooo... Yeah. I'm not surprised you haven't heard back from emailing them.

    Yes, how long will the letter arrive? I’m fine with them pulling money off my debit card because I don’t want to get in trouble. There’s also people bragging scamming payments that they receive everyday. It’s all over online talking about PUA scams.

    They keep scaring the shit out of everybody with all these news reports of people fuggin dying. They better Not say shit about these PUA payments people are receiving. I, too, have this odd feeling in my gut that they're going to come thugging on everybody after this is all over, wanting their money back, or auditing people as to how much they received, whether they should have received it, or whatever. That better not happen. People have gone through so much mental, emotional, psychological, and even physical stress over all this, that it's literally fucked with peoples' health. Don't come back later and try to get in peoples' wallets. smdh

    Invest it. So if they do come collecting it back then at least you’ll have made/get to keep some money

    What if I don’t get the letter from the state? I am not sure how long until I get it. It says letter will arrive in 30days and 15 days to appeal. What am I appealing? I don’t have a boss that pays paychecks.

    Should I request a waiver since it wasn’t my fault?

    The problem is, the state may attempt to intercept your income tax refund. I agree, putting your overpayment into savings is a good idea.
