Thank you; the department regularly monitors for overpayments of benefits.
If the discrepancy is noticed, they will send a request for reimbursement for overpayment of payments. If there is no fraud involved (ie the applicant did not do anything purposefully to receive the overpayment) then they only require repayment, and will often work out a repayment plan. If there is fraud involved, they can prosecute based on the fraudulent conduct.
If one is aware of overpayment they can notify the department and request an audit
When a person initiates the issue by contacting the deparment they generally simply review the account and request the overpaid amount to be returned.
