It says the entitlement to EI for that period is under review. Is it the same as being investigated? Options : 1) Provide an accurate and factual answers to questions asked and forward with a regular post, registered; 2) call the EI office explaining the situation over the phone; 3) wait for the results of their finding for possible overpayment and or penalty; 4) seek legal consultation immediately for advice. Time in the letter is very short, few days to complete and return the form.
Yes. It's being investigated by the Integrity Branch. Obviously someone was on EI and didn't report his/her absence outside of Canada so that's a false declaration on their claimant's report.
