This chapter gives information on overpayments and helps you determine how to pursue overpayment recoupment or recovery.
An overpayment occurs whenever a family and/or provider receives more child care assistance than they were actually eligible for, even when caused by agency error or circumstances outside the responsibility and control of the family or provider.
When you become aware of an overpayment, review the case for accuracy.
Recoup or recover overpayments from participants and/or providers. The method of recovery varies depending on whether the person responsible for the overpayment is a current or former participant and/or provider. See the chapters below for more information:
