If for any other reason you have been paid compensation that you are not entitled to
Explanation:
If you have been paid too much, or for any other reason you have been paid compensation that you are not entitled to, the sum must be returned.

or perhaps
-- been paid compensation to which you are not entitled ---

Here I would use a neutral passive - the ´someone has caused...´ strikes me as too eager to place the blame in English.
(That may have to be dealt with, but is probably a separate issue.)
