unemployed_personQ) Are you able to receive unemployment while your on a payment plan for over payment?

A) For some states, if you are still requesting unemployment benefits, you can continue to submit biweekly payment requests. Your State unemployment office will apply each eligible payment toward reducing your overpayment. You must repay all of your overpayment before you can be paid further benefits. Additional payments should be mailed to your state unemployment office.
