Why are you investigating about my separation from my previous employer?

Under the Michigan Employment Security Act, all employers whom you have worked for in the past 18 months are resposible for a percentage of your unemployment benefits.  Therefore, each employer is a responsible and interested party on your claim for benefits.  An investigation must be conducted to determine your qualification for benefits.  To protect your rights to benefits, please continue to certify (report) using your MiWAM account or by telephone through MARVIN.
