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 owe IDES money for benefits that they paid previously and you should not have received, then repayment of those benefits is not punishment, the punishment is the penalty weeks you have to serve on top of the money you have to repay. I am afraid that if the appeals board has denied you, the only one who can waive the penalty is the Director of IDES and your final option is writing a letter to the Director of IDES and ask them based on the significant financial hardship to agree to waive or reduce the penalty weeks, but I am afraid that the director's decision is final and the court cannot overturn it since the penalty on top of recoupment is mandated by the state law.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
