Can I get a waiver of the work search requirement?

There are some COVID-19 related reasons that the work search requirement may be waived. Claimants may apply for a waiver in MiWAM or by calling the UIA customer service line at 1-866-500-0017. You will be notified at the time of the request whether a waiver of the requirement is granted. You must apply and be approved for the waiver before you certify for benefits for the bi-weekly certification period.  Click here for more information about work search waivers.
