Covid - UIA no communication - Please help me pay

Hi, my name is Jason Record.
I was raised on a farm in Parma Michigan, until I graduated from WMU. I moved and Lived in San Diego for 20 years, until I got word of my elderly father having health issues. I decided 3 years ago, the right thing to do is give up my career and social life and move home to take care of my dad. I had to find some sort of work, since my education and work experience is not valid in this tiny village of Parma. I finally found a job and then was quickly laid off in February due to covid. I applied for benefits and was awarded them in early march and everything was ok at best.  UIA must have been affected by the Covid shut down and that's why they did not communicate with me until late July 2020. The first communication with UIA in 5 months and it was them telling me I owe $14,500 for over payment. I have spoken with my state representative  and local congressman about this issue and they have gotten nowhere.
I am asking for help to pay this huge debt off. I haven't had work since late January and every bit of savings/retirement have been used up. My father is not getting any better and my family is struggling everyday. Paying this off would allow me to get a loan from the bank and get started on my outstanding bills.

Thank you for reading this.
