Received an overpayment notice in very detail - Total Amount Due + Overpayment Amount + Penalty Amount and it requires for me to appeal in 20 days. My extension claim for unemployment for the period of 9/08 -9/09 was denied. I had been unemployed for more than a year now. I had posted my resume everywhere still haven't receive no offers. I am unmarried woman with no health insurance, dental nor vision insurance and need desperately for help. I have no means to pay this debt and if you can help me make a letter of appeal to EDD to forgive this assessed overpayment money. I need a cataract surgery and thyroid surgery and everything is all on hold because I don't have no insurance at all and this issue of overpayment issue is a big burden on my part and have no means to pay it back. The notice was so harsh -quote " You are liable to repay this overpayment. Failure to do so may result in legal action". Please help!
You should retain local counsel to draft the letter or seek pro bono assignment from the local bar association or the court.
What is your opinion if I send the reasons above as part of my appeal? Will they accept it and approve my request?
So what your saying they won't forgive me for the overpayment and won't accept my appeal for the extension claim?
