WAG 23-02-02-b: Agency Error (AE)

PM 23-02-02-b

(FCRC) Report the entire overpayment period as agency error if part of an overpayment period was because of agency error. A finding of AE is not assessed against the FCRC or worker.

Example: Ms. M. reported that her son moved out of her home. A $40 overpayment was referred as an agency error for 06/96 because the FCRC did not remove Ms. M's son from the unit. The caseworker later discovered that Ms. M. failed to report employment. A $200 additional overpayment occurred for 06/96. Report this additional overpayment for the month of 06/96 as agency error.
