What does "disqualified week" mean?

If you are disqualified you may lose some or all of your benefits. The most common reasons have to do with the reason you were separated from your job. 

A Determination regarding your eligibility for benefits was made. To read the Notice of Determination letter in MiWAM, go to the Determination Status tab and click on the blue 'Letter ID' link to the left.

To submit your protest/appeal in MiWAM, click on the blue 'File Protest/Appeal' link on the far right and type an explanation of the reason(s) why you disagree with the decision. To protect your rights to benefits during the protest period, please continue to certify biweekly through MiWAM online or MARVIN by phone during your scheduled certification week until you have returned to full-time work.
