Unemployment Insurance Agency

  • Michigan's Unemployment Insurance program provides temporary income to workers who have lost their job through no fault of their own. The program is funded through unemployment taxes paid by employers. We offer an array of convenient online services to unemployed workers and to employers. Contact us by phone, through your online account or visit in person at one of 13 local offices around the state. 




  • Notice to Employers:

    If you are an employer temporarily laying off workers, you can request a waiver of the work registration and seeking work requirements for your laid off worker(s). This waiver can only be requested if you expect work to be available within 45-days of the individual’s last day of work and must be requested prior to the individual becoming payable for benefits. To request this waiver, employers can log into their Michigan Web Account Manager (MiWAM) at www.michigan.gov/uia and click on the Seeking Work Waiver link.  Click here for more information.
