Apply for a Waiver for Unemployment Overpayments

July 13, 2021
Emilia Strong Sykes News

If you received a non-fraud unemployment overpayment at no fault of your own, you are eligible to request a waiver to prevent you from repaying those funds. Money will also be returned to claimants who already repaid an overpayment but qualify for the waiver. Those who received Trade, SharedWork Ohio, and other types of unemployment benefits may also be eligible for waiver. 

Please see the step by step guides for how to request an overpayment waiver for the traditional unemployment system, as well as Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA).
