Labor and Economic Opportunity
Great news! PUA applications are being processed. Here are some things you should know:
- You can IGNORE the alert for adding income verification if you have already submitted it. The minimum weekly benefit amount is $160, the maximum is $362 and that is based off the proof of your previous income. That option is there for those who did not a submit wage documentation the first time and think they may qualify for more. The additional $600 will automatically be applied to your account after certification.
- Be sure to certify on the dates that are assigned to you under your account alerts. If you are assigned this week, give it time. Accounts are still updating. The preferred way is to certify online in your MiWAM account.
- You can also certify by phone using MARVIN on those assigned dates.
- You can still submit applications. We’re committed to making sure that every eligible worker in Michigan who applies for unemployment benefits receives them.
