NEW ORLEANS, La. (WDSU) — The Louisiana Workforce Commission is investigating after a technical issue caused 7,600 residents to receive unemployment overpayments.

LWC said the over-payment notices were generated on Sept. 9-10.

LWC said it is working with the vendor to correct this technical issue and apologized for the confusion.

The LWC said it will send a “Notice of Adjustment” to these individuals within the next week that will indicate their overpayment balance is $0.

Currently, no action is required by any of those impacted, according to the commission.

The vast majority of individuals will not owe anything related to this issue, the commission said in a news release.

“The LWC has established an email inbox exclusively for these overpayment related issues. If you have additional questions once your receive your Adjustment Notice, please contact the LWC via email, Septovrpymtissue@lwc.la.gov. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and thank you for your patience,” the commission said in a statement.
