Hagåtña, Guam – The Leon Guerrero-Tenorio Administration approved another $1.2 million in Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) Overpayment Waivers this week. To date, over $8 million in PUA waivers have been approved since the U.S. Department of Labor first granted Governor Lou Leon Guerrero’s request to ease the guidelines for waiver of overpayments.
“Our Administration continues to work diligently on waiving all non-fraudulent PUA overpayments, so those who received these funds during their time of need will not have to worry about repayment,” said Governor Lou Leon Guerrero. “I especially want to thank U.S. Department of Labor Deputy Secretary Julie Su, with whom Guam Department of Labor Director Dave Dell’Isola and I met during my trip to Washington, D.C. The Secretary is a strong partner and friend to Guam, who helped make the waiver process as easy as possible.”
“With the success of the Government of Guam Relief Center and continued approvals of PUA overpayment waivers, we remain committed to pursuing every opportunity to provide financial assistance for our community,” said Lt. Governor Josh Tenorio. “As many PUA recipients return to work or avail of the job training boot camps we’ve invested in, our Administration looks forward to leveraging our federal partnerships to further strengthen our road to recovery.”
The Guam Department of Labor (GDOL) continues to review submitted Applications of Waiver of Overpayment for approval.
