Local Offices

Due to COVID-19, Unemployment Insurance Agency (UIA) local offices are currently closed to the public. These changes will remain effective as long as necessary for the health and safety of the public. UIA offices will continue to serve the public and eligible employees are encouraged to apply for benefits online or by calling 866-500-0017. You may also contact UIA by sending a web notice or chat via your MiWAM account.

Unemployment Insurance Local Offices provide in-person help for customers with unemployment insurance claims. Telephones and computers are available for those who may not have access to a computer or telephone to file their claim.
