Submitting Your Work Search Activity in MiWAM

Claimants receiving unemployment benefits are required to actively search for work and report at least one work search activity for each week they claim benefits. You must report your work search activity when you certify. Your benefits will not be paid until your work search activities have been reported to UIA.

There are several options for seeking work that will count as a valid work search activity. Work search activities can include attending job fairs, interviewing for jobs, attending employment workshops and more.

This work search activity list will help you select the activity in MiWAM which most closely aligns with the work search activity you completed. Be sure to save all confirmation emails or documentation to ensure the work search activities you complete can be verified by UIA.
