We are writing to tell you that we are waiving the collection of *F1 *F2 overpayment
of $*F3. This means *F4 will not have to pay this money back.
The Reason For Our Decision1
For us to waive the collection of this overpayment, two things have to be true.
It was not *F5 fault that *F6 got too much *F7 money.
Paying us back would mean *F8 cannot pay *F9 bills for food, clothing, housing, medical
care, or other necessary
expenses, or it would be unfair for some other reason.
Based on the facts we have, we found that both of these are true about *F10. Therefore,
*F11 will not have to pay us back. (E3180.1)
