An Air Force member appealed the denial of his request for waiver of his debt to the United States arising out of overpayments of pay and allowances during a period of pay record adjustment. Although the member was not at fault and he notified officials of errors, he could not be granted the waiver since he knew he was being overpaid when the errors occurred and would be required to make restitution.
