Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unfortunately, while the director of unemployment may waive penalties, they cannot waive interest or money due. So you can negotiate a payment plan with them to try to repay in reasonable payments, but they are not going to waive the money you collected that you should not have collected.
You have to file a written appeal to them and explain the significant financial hardship and inability to repay and explain that your collection was inadvertent and not intentional and ask the director to waive the penalties and offer a reasonable monthly repayment plan for you to repay the over payment.
