Ariz. Admin. Code § R6-13-133 - Overpayments: Date of Discovery; Collection

Current through Register Vol. 48, No. 14, April 8, 2022

An overpayment exists when an assistance unit receives a TC payment that exceeds the amount the assistance unit was eligible to receive.

1. The Department shall pursue collection of all overpayments under A.R.S. § 46-213.
2. The Department shall send the recipient a notice of overpayment within 90 days of the date of discovery. The date of discovery is the date the FAA has all of the information necessary to accurately calculate a potential overpayment and writes an overpayment report to the Department's Office of Accounts Receivable and Collections (OARC).
3. If the FAA suspects that fraudulent activity caused the overpayment, the FAA shall refer the potential overpayment to the Department's Office of Special Investigations (OSI) for further investigation and potential prosecution. The overpayment report may be delayed pending the outcome of the OSI investigation.
4. The Department's failure to comply with the time-frame in subsection (2) shall not affect the validity or collection of the overpayment.
