Thank you for your reply and additional information,
They have already decided that your wife does not have to repay any of her unemployment compensation benefits and I imagine it is for the same reasons employed by the Social Security Administration when they make a mistake and either overpay an individual, or where they should not have paid at all, and among the factors they use are:
1. It was the mistake of the unemployment compensation Benefits Office;
2. The mistake was made through no fault on your wife's part;
3. It would be a hardship if they demanded that your wife repay these benefits.
Do not allow them to intimidate you, or scare you by saying that you are responsible, or you have a legal obligation to repay them "on behalf of your wife" because this is simply not the case. There is absolutely no legal basis to hold you liable, so please do not concede anything and do not let them convince you of anything. You have no legal obligation to the Unemployment Compensation Benefits Board for their own mistake,
1. The Unemployment Compensation Board has no authority or jurisdiction over you with respect to payments it made to your wife;
2. Nothing was paid to you;
3. You played no part in the mistake;
4. One spouse is not liable for repayment of payments made to the other spouse in error by the Unemployment Compensation Office.
I wish you the best of Luck,
