A. An individual shall have sixty days from the date of mailing of the notice required by R.S. 47:299.15(B) to appeal a decision by the responsible official of an agency that an offset amount shall be retained because a debt is owed by the individual to the claiming agency.
B. If an appeal is not made within sixty days from the date of mailing of the official's decision, the amount of offset shall be removed from the escrow account, released to the claiming agency, and credited against the individual's debt to the claiming agency or against the individual's debt to the person on whose behalf the agency is claiming.
C. The provisions of this Section shall not apply to an appeal from a decision under the Louisiana Employment Security Law, which instead shall be in accordance with the procedure and delays as provided in R.S. 23:1629 et seq.
