Overpayments Notice

Notice

Some customers were issued additional benefit payments in excess of the amount to which they were entitled. Those affected have been issued a notice of overpayment. The overpayment will be recovered through offset of future benefit payments to which the individual is entitled. The notice of overpayment outlines steps to appeal should an individual believe this determination is not correct.

Customers should not expect phone contact from MDES about the overpayment and should not give any information regarding the overpayment to anyone by phone unless they can verify the caller is employed with MDES. MDES will not withdraw funds from customer's bank account or debit card, ask for customer debit card information or direct the customer to send money through the mail.

Individuals who have questions or concerns about their overpayment may send their questions to CV19@mdes.ms.gov and MUST include "overpayment" in the subject line of the email.
