Since the NYSDOL made the error and it was of no fault of my own, they should waive the repayment in my opinion. Why should I pay for their mistake? I worked hard for those EUC benefits, kept detailed records of my searches. If I made an error they would have applied penalties and would have ruined my life. I followed their instructions by the book and they paid me as a result. Now they want the money back. I paid back the 15-weeks to NYS that NJ paid me. The rest of the year's EUC I should be allowed to keep, which is why I requested a hearing. They want me to continue to certify until the hearing.
I'd really have to look at the entire file in order to give you the best possible advice and guidance. Happy to do so if you want to message me privately concerning this.
