What you can do for Missourians this week:
Call Gov. Parson 573-751-3222 and tell him to waive collection of Federal Unemployment overpayments! Missourians filed for unemployment in good faith, and of no fault of their own they were overpaid by the federal government. On May 5, 2021, the United States Department of Labor issued Unemployment Insurance Program Letter NO. 20-21 which gives the Parson administration authority to waive recovery of these non-fraudulent overpayments.
