NOTE: A request for waiver made within 30 days of the date of the overpayment notice is
considered to have been made in the month of that notice.
EXAMPLE 1: On 4/12/87 Pete Rock was notified of a $1,680 overpayment because of an incorrect
computation. His 5/87and 6/87 benefits of $400.00 monthly were withheld, and the outstanding
overpayment had been reduced to $880 ($1,680 minus $800) prior to his 7/87 request
for waiver. Waiver was approved and there was no further recovery of his overpayment.
In 10/88, an AERO resulted in a $2 monthly benefit increase effective 1/87. The additional
1/87 through 3/87 benefits totaling $6 cause a refiguring of his overpayment; the
refigured overpayment is $1,674 (see GN 02201.025C.).
The additional 4/87 through 6/87 benefits totaling $6, due for months before the month
that waiver was requested, are withheld to adjust the overpayment for which recovery
has been waived to $868 (i.e., $1,674 minus $800 minus $6). The additional benefits
due beginning 7/87, the month of the waiver request, are paid.
EXAMPLE 2: If, given the facts in Example 1, Mr. Rock had requested waiver on May 9, 1987 (i.e.,
within 30 days of the overpayment notice), only the additional benefits due through
3/87 will be withheld to refigure the $1,680 overpayment. In this case, the overpayment
for which recovery has been waived is $1,674 (i.e., $1,680-$6). The entire underpayment
(i.e., additional benefits due from 4/87, the month of overpayment determination and
notice) is paid.
