An employee appealed a settlement denying her request for waiver of overpayments which resulted from deductions not being increased when she increased her health insurance coverage. Since the employee received leave and earnings statements throughout the period of the overpayments which did not indicate that the deductions were increased, she had constructive knowledge of the overpayments and was at fault for not making a timely inquiry into the correctness of her pay. The determination denying a waiver was sustained.
