I got “overpaid” out on vacation days when I quit once. I kept it and considered it comp for all the holidays, life events i missed because of the agency.

Careful about anything that went to SSA, benefits or 401k. They likely expect gross back (been there) but be sure to send net. And don’t expedite. And check your W2 when the time comes to make sure income matches your prior check not the ytd on this one.

They sent the net w/ tax, ssn, 401k, and medical “deducted” (which was the usual amt I got bi-weekly)

Gotta love holding companies.

Speaking from experience, they may try to flex their legal muscles regarding money that isn’t technically yours, no matter how much good will you exercised.

They even asked for me to pay out of pocket to expedite the return check. What happens if the check... gets lost in transit? Can they come after me? It’s their fault. I technically dont have to do anything. Right?

I’d tell them to stuff it
