WAC 388-410-0020

What happens if I receive more basic food, FAP, or WASHCAP benefits than I am supposed to receive?

(1) If you receive more basic food, FAP, or WASHCAP benefits than you were supposed to receive, your assistance unit (AU) has an overpayment. There are three types of overpayments:
(a) Administrative error overpayment: When you received too many benefits because the department made a mistake.
(b) Inadvertent household error overpayment: When you received too many benefits because you made a mistake or didn't understand what you were supposed to do.
(c) Intentional program violation (IPV) overpayment: When you received too many benefits because you broke a federal food assistance rule on purpose. If you have an IPV, you could be disqualified from receiving basic food or WASHCAP benefits under chapter 388-446 WAC.
