Overpayments FAQs

If you have an overpayment, it means that the Kansas Department of Labor (KDOL) has determined that you obtained Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits in excess of the amount that might otherwise have applied. There can be several causes of overpayment but the most common is a determination, at a hearing or an appeal, that you were not qualified to receive UI benefits which had already been provided to you. Overpayments can also be due to fraudulent UI claims.

null How do I report suspected UI fraud?

Unemployment fraud is the willful misrepresentation of information to collect UI benefits. To report fraud, you can call the Fraud Hotline at (785) 291-6059 or visit the Report Fraud page.
