NOTE For NA, when an IPV is suspected due to unreported earned income, the overpayment is recalculated for overpayment months before August, 1996. The 20% earned income deduction is not allowed for the portion of earnings that may have been willfully unreported.
The recalculated amount is shown on the NA Waiver of the Right to an Administrative Disqualification Appeal (OARC1) form. Copies of the revised overpayments are sent to the appropriate local office and the OARC Collections Unit when an IPV determination has been made.

Postpone collection action, consideration for an administrative disqualification appeal, and participant notification on overpayments referred to OSI pending investigation.
Refer cases to the Appellate Services Administration (ASA) for an administrative disqualification appeal.
