FL Overpayment Confusion
#1
Hello, I'm in Florida. I was out for a brief time (2 weeks) about two months ago due to an injury. I just received a letter from my claim adjuster saying that I had been overpayed X amount and that it is my responsibility to reimburse them. I have been researching the laws in my state (FL) but am finding conflicting information. Would anyone be able to clear this up for me? Am I required to pay this amount back? For the record I am no longer receiving benefits of any kind.

Thank you!

No, not generally.
But...
The losses will be reported to your employer and they may not be willing to write it off.

So would you suggest I just pay it back? Strangely the amount they're saying I was overpayed is by my estimation double what they actually did overpay.

Better to fight them over the difference or just forget about it?

I don,t know what your relationship is with your employer but you might want to let them know a head of time. See what they want to do.
