Citation: 5 N.J.A.R. 427
Decision Date: 1983
Agency: DIVISION OF PUBLIC WELFARE
Synopsis: Respondent requested relief from the decision of a local county welfare agency reducing her AFDC payments which allegedly resulted from the willful withholding of information about her return to work. The administrative law judge assigned to the case determined that the applicable regulations limited recoupment of overpayments to the 12 months proceeding the month in which the overpayment was discovered unless willful withholding of information could be found. The judge found that no willful withholding of information occurred since the respondent clearly reported her employment. Accordingly, the recoupment of payments was denied.
