.04 Recovery of Overpayments.

The Department may recover overpayments by beginning civil actions or, in the discretion of the Secretary, overpayments may be offset against current or future payments of unemployment insurance benefits to which the overpaid claimant is entitled. If the Department chooses to recover the overpayment by offset, the amount of the offset may be 100 percent of the current or future weekly benefit entitlement.
