The Michigan Web Account Manager (MiWAM)

MiWAM header

The Michigan Web Account Manager (MiWAM) is the UI’s system for filing and claim and managing your own UI account online. MiWAM makes doing business with the UI simpler, faster and more efficient.

With MiWAM you can:

  • Check your claim balance and benefit payment history
  • Update your personal information
  • Choose or change your payment method (debit card  or direct deposit)
  • Submit a question for a response by email
  • Make a payment
  • File a protest or appeal a decision
  • Submit monthly work search information

Certifying for benefits is also more convenient with MiWAM. Unlike MARVIN, you don’t have to wait for an appointed day and time to certify for benefits. You can certify anytime during the day or night – Monday through Saturday. Certifying online reduces processing time, and gets you your payment faster.

How to Use MiWAM
