TWC Cuts Off Benefits For Some After Reports Of Overpayment

A small percentage of Texans who filed for unemployment are finding their benefit payments cut off because of earlier overpayments.

A Texas Workforce Commission spokesperson says about one-percent of people receiving unemployment benefits are affected, and he says it's a mistake.

He says the Treasury Offset Program, which recovers excess benefit payments, was temporarily suspended in March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
