FAQ
  Overpayments FAQ
What is an overpayment of Unemployment Insurance (UI) Benefits?
 
Answer:

Overpayments are benefits paid to a claimant who is later determined not to have been eligible or entitled to those benefits. Because benefits were paid to the claimant before a decision and/or action changed the claimant's eligibility or entitlement, these benefits must be paid back to the State of Michigan's Unemployment Insurance Agency, regardless of fault.

A Notice of Restitution Due is mailed to claimants who have been overpaid and explains what caused the overpayment, the amount owed, penalties (if applicable), and provides information about your Appeal rights.
