    contractors, or subcontractors if disclosure is necessary
    in order for the entity to perform its duties and
    responsibilities; and, if disclosing to a contractor or
    subcontractor, prior to such disclosure, the governmental

    to investigate or prevent fraud, to conduct background
    checks, to collect a debt, to obtain a credit report from a
    consumer reporting agency under the federal Fair Credit
    Reporting Act, to undertake any permissible purpose that
    is enumerated under the federal Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, or
    to locate a missing person, a lost relative, or a person
    who is due a benefit, such as a pension benefit or an
    unclaimed property benefit.
    (d) If any State or local government agency has adopted
standards for the collection, use, or disclosure of social
security numbers that are stricter than the standards under
this Act with respect to the protection of those social
security numbers, then, in the event of any conflict with the
provisions of this Act, the stricter standards adopted by the

    (820 ILCS 405/900)  (from Ch. 48, par. 490)
    Sec. 900. Recoupment.)
    A. Whenever an individual has received any sum as benefits
for which he or she is found to have been ineligible, the
individual must be provided written notice of his or her
appeal rights, including the ability to request waiver of any
recoupment ordered and the standard for such waiver to be
granted. Thereafter, the amount thereof may be recovered by
suit in the name of the People of the State of Illinois, or,
from benefits payable to him, may be recouped:
        1. At any time, if, to receive such sum, he knowingly
    made a false statement or knowingly failed to disclose a
    material fact.
        2. Within 3 years from any date prior to January 1,
    1984, on which he has been found to have been ineligible
    for any other reason, pursuant to a reconsidered finding
    or a reconsidered determination, or pursuant to the
    decision of a Referee (or of the Director or his
    representative under Section 604) which modifies or sets
    aside a finding or a reconsidered finding or a
    determination or a reconsidered determination; or within 5
    years from any date after December 31, 1983, on which he
    has been found to have been ineligible for any other
    reason, pursuant to a reconsidered finding or a
    reconsidered determination, or pursuant to the decision of
    a Referee (or of the Director or his representative under
    Section 604) which modifies or sets aside a finding or a
    reconsidered finding or a determination or a reconsidered
    determination. Recoupment pursuant to the provisions of
    this paragraph from benefits payable to an individual for
    any week may be waived upon the individual's request, if
    the sum referred to in paragraph A was received by the
    individual without fault on his part and if such
    recoupment would be against equity and good conscience.
    Such waiver may be denied with respect to any subsequent
    week if, in that week, the facts and circumstances upon
    which waiver was based no longer exist.
    Recovery by suit in the name of the People of the State of
Illinois, recoupment pursuant to paragraph 2 of this
subsection A from benefits payable to an individual for any
week, and, notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in
the Illinois State Collection Act of 1986, withholding
pursuant to subsection E shall be permanently waived if the
sum referred to in this subsection A was received by the
individual without fault on his or her part and if such
recoupment would be against equity and good conscience, and
the sum referred to in this subsection A was received by the
individual on or after March 8, 2020, but prior to the last day
of a disaster period established by the gubernatorial disaster
proclamation in response to COVID-19, dated March 9, 2020, and
any consecutive gubernatorial disaster proclamation in
response to COVID-19. To be eligible for permanent waiver
under this paragraph, an individual must request a waiver
pursuant to this paragraph within 45 days of the mailing date
of the notice from the Department that the individual may
request a waiver. A determination under this paragraph may be
appealed to a Referee within the time limits prescribed by
Section 800 for an appeal from a determination. Any such
appeal, and any appeal from the Referee's decision thereon,
shall be governed by the applicable provisions of Sections
801, 803, 804, and 805. This paragraph shall not apply with
respect to benefits that are received pursuant to any program
that the Department administers as an agent of the federal
government and for which the individual is found to have been
ineligible.
    B. Whenever the claims adjudicator referred to in Section
702 decides that any sum received by a claimant as benefits
shall be recouped, or denies recoupment waiver requested by
the claimant, he shall promptly notify the claimant of his
decision and the reasons therefor. The decision and the notice
thereof shall state the amount to be recouped, the weeks with
respect to which such sum was received by the claimant, and the
time within which it may be recouped and, as the case may be,
the reasons for denial of recoupment waiver. The claims
adjudicator may reconsider his decision within one year after
the date when the decision was made. Such decision or
reconsidered decision may be appealed to a Referee within the
time limits prescribed by Section 800 for appeal from a
determination. Any such appeal, and any appeal from the
Referee's decision thereon, shall be governed by the
applicable provisions of Sections 801, 803, 804 and 805. No
recoupment shall be begun until the expiration of the time
limits prescribed by Section 800 of this Act or, if an appeal
has been filed, until the decision of a Referee has been made
thereon affirming the decision of the Claims Adjudicator.
    C. Any sums recovered under the provisions of this Section
shall be treated as repayments to the Department of sums
improperly obtained by the claimant.
    D. Whenever, by reason of a back pay award made by any
governmental agency or pursuant to arbitration proceedings, or
by reason of a payment of wages wrongfully withheld by an
employing unit, an individual has received wages for weeks
with respect to which he has received benefits, the amount of
such benefits may be recouped or otherwise recovered as herein
provided. An employing unit making a back pay award to an
individual for weeks with respect to which the individual has
received benefits shall make the back pay award by check
payable jointly to the individual and to the Department.
    E. The amount recouped pursuant to paragraph 2 of
subsection A from benefits payable to an individual for any
week shall not exceed 25% of the individual's weekly benefit
amount.
    In addition to the remedies provided by this Section, when
an individual has received any sum as benefits for which he is
found to be ineligible, the Director may request the
Comptroller to withhold such sum in accordance with Section
10.05 of the State Comptroller Act and the Director may
request the Secretary of the Treasury to withhold such sum to
the extent allowed by and in accordance with Section 6402(f)
of the federal Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.
Benefits paid pursuant to this Act shall not be subject to such
withholding. Where the Director requests withholding by the
Secretary of the Treasury pursuant to this Section, in
addition to the amount of benefits for which the individual
has been found ineligible, the individual shall be liable for
any legally authorized administrative fee assessed by the
Secretary, with such fee to be added to the amount to be
withheld by the Secretary.
