Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy attorney here to assist you.
Was the original payment approval based on any type of fraud or misrepresentation on your part?
No not at all.They paid the leave while I was out. I didnt fill out any timesheets or anything for that payment. After AETNA denied paid leave,, my employer sent a letter stating I was overpaid and demand payment. Im still out on unpaid leave. I have no money
Thank you for your response.
If the overpayment was not your fault, then that amount can be included and discharged in a Bankruptcy.
This means you can pay back the overpayment if you want, but your wages cannot be garnished.
Thats what I want. I want to make a payment plan without being harmed. thanks again
You're welcome again!
