Got an Overpayment Notice from the Employment Department? Get help!

From our friends at LCSA – Labor’s Community Service Agency: It has come to our attention that a wave of overpayment notices are being sent out to claimants previously on Unemployment Insurance in Oregon, due to a recent internal audit conducted at the Employment Department.

These overpayment notices can be both confusing and intimidating to members to receive this letter, and claimants may think that repayment is their only option, even when the overpayment was at no fault of their own. Furthermore, the Oregon Employment Department allows only a short time after these notices are mailed out to appeal the determination or file a waiver to request the overpayment be forgiven, so it is a time sensitive matter for claimants.

Please email if you would like to be referred to LCSA for support.
