Hi, My position was terminated end of July due to budget cuts. I immediately filed for unemployment and told them that I expected to receive a severance, but no agreement had been signed. They told me to go ahead and apply for unemployment benefits. Three

I was terminated July 20 with pay to Aug 2. No agreement was signed and a severance/vacation pay/PTO, etc. was all in negotiation until I signed the agreement on Oct. 23. I applied for and collected unemployment during the weeks between. I was notified that it was determined that I was "overpaid" and would have to pay back the unemployment (by the way two weeks between where I could't collect from either and had no income to pay my bills). I am seeking an appeal - does it sound like I have a good case and/or any suggestions in what to say during the phone hearing? I feel that unemployment failed me in my situation - if it requires me to pay it back. I wasn't being double paid at any time. Thank you!
