  • Lost Wages Assistance Update 

    The UIA is continuing to issue Lost Wages Assistance (LWA) payments to eligible claimants. Michigan has been approved for all six weeks available of the program covering the dates of 7/26/2020 – 9/05/2020. To qualify, claimants must self-certify that they are unemployed or partially unemployed due to COVID-19. Many people have already completed this step on their claim application (such as PUA claimants). Those payments were the first ones that were issued. Claimants who still need to self-certify will receive notification to answer a question in their MiWAM account under the “Alerts” section. Payments will be issued after this step is completed for those that are eligible.
