Can EI Overpayments Be Cleared?

Can Employment Insurance (EI) overpayments be erased? Understanding this question is crucial for those facing financial challenges. A recent court decision, Stoddard (re), 2021 NSSC 81, sheds light on how EI overpayments are handled under the law.

While EI overpayments aren’t typically erased, the court’s decision provides clarity on what happens to them during bankruptcy or consumer proposals. While technically they remain a debt, government agencies often don’t pursue repayment after these legal processes.

This insight is valuable for individuals navigating debt and considering their options. For personalized guidance on managing debt, consider reaching out to certified debt relief managers at Great Canadian Debt Relief Inc. Start by filling out our form or calling 888-925-1640.
