Overpayment Question
#1
I was on workers comp for a month and a half due to a sprained ankle. I received a letter in the mail that they overpayed me approx $1000. I then received a very rude phone call from a worker at the workers comp place telling me that I never should have cashed the check they sent me because that's what caused the overpayment. Sorry... ranting at this point. I live in California and am on a very strict income so I was wondering, do I have to pay the overpayment back? I've never been on workers comp before so I don't know the ins and outs.
THANK YOU.

No you are not required to make repayment.
However they can claim credit against any future disability benefits that might arise out of the injury.
