benefit year;

      (4) Payment in excess of the maximum

benefit amount;

determinations, except that a determination that the claimant has committed

fraud shall not be considered office error;

      (7) Monetary redeterminations;

      (8) Payment during a period of

disqualification;

      (9) Payment to a wrong claimant; or

      (10) Erroneous payments resulting from human
