When will I receive my payments?

For claimants who have already self-certified their eligibility, UIA began issuing the first three weeks of payments the week of September 6. Payments for the second three weeks began processing the week of Sept 13. For claimants who need to self-certify, payments will be processed after you have answered the certification question. The self-certification question should begin appearing in your MiWAM account.

The only exception is if your unemployment claim or payment for any of the weeks for which LWA is payable, is pending due to an outstanding issue that is being investigated. Those issues must be resolved before you can receive the extra $300 for those weeks.
