Do I have to look for work to be eligible for benefits?
No. The requirement that an unemployed individual register and seek work to remain eligible for benefits, MCL 421.28(1)(a), is suspended in Executive Order 2020-24(7). The reasoning behind this is that suitable work is unavailable for workers due to COVID-19.
