Overpaid Unemployment Benefits


Another very common issue that we see at our office is debts related to an over-payment of unemployment benefits.

This is a serious issue, since Michigan law allows for the Unemployment Insurance Agency (UIA) to quadruple damages where it is alleging fraud. A relatively small claim for an over-payment of benefits can quickly spiral into a claim for tens of thousands of dollars. 

An attorney can be critical to helping you navigate this issue. If you wish to seek help for UIA issues outside of bankruptcy, Click Here to schedule a consultation. By the end of this consultation, you will have advice and a strategy for resolving your issues with UIA.
