    I am self employed and worked threw 2019. when the Pandemic started i applied for unemployment and PUA. I received it. NOW unemployment is saying i owe over 10,000, why is this?

      Hi Wendy,

      Ugh. PUA recipients in some states are now being asked to provide evidence of the 2019 income they stated in their application, and it looks like they may even be required to repay if they received any “amount they were not entitled to, federal law requires states to demand repayment, even if the “overpayment” resulted from an honest mistake”. I’m not sure where you are located, but it is possible that your state has decided to implement this requirement now as well.
