Guam Department of Labor Extends Deadline to Apply for PUA Waiver of Overpayment

For Immediate Release – July 18, 2022

Hagåtña, Guam – The Guam Department of Labor (GDOL) has extended the deadline to submit an Application of Waiver of Overpayment from the department to consider waiving the collection that may be owed by recipients of Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA). The new deadline is now August 1, 2022.

PUA recipients should have received notification letters informing them of their total overpayment amount, how much is due, and how to make payments. The second part of the letter informs the individual that they may submit an Application of Waiver of Overpayment from the department. The notification letters listing the outstanding balance are necessary for individuals to be able to submit an Application of Waiver of Overpayment.

“Governor Lou Leon Guerrero has given us the green light to extend the deadline by a couple more weeks which gives us a chance to not only catch up but also give more people an opportunity to apply for waivers,” said Director David Dell’Isola. “Our staff have been very helpful so I encourage those with a letter to visit our office for guidance, which will improve their chances of approval.”

Applications of Waivers of Overpayment will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Application forms are available online at dol.guam.gov and at the Department of Labor office at the GCIC Building in Hagåtña, 8th Floor, 404 West Soledad Ave. Application forms may also be submitted via email to pua.waivers@nulldol.guam.gov.
