Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you have proof that you sent in the earnings proof, then there is no fraud committed, they have to prove intent. Even if your case worker did not report the income change, as there was no intent on your part or fraud and you can show you sent in your stubs, they may make you repay benefits for those two months, but they can also agree to waive it, if they even catch it. If it was only 4 months, they may not even catch this.
Thank you for your reply.
Yes, most times, they will only make you pay the benefits for the months you should not have received them and they will waive penalties and interest if you show you did report it as you were supposed to do.
