Common Mistakes to Avoid When Filing a State UI Claim
Not accurately reporting the reason you are unemployed
Entering incorrect information
Not reporting wages you have received
Not being available for work
To avoid these common mistakes that cause a delay in payments, review the Unemployment Benefits in Michigan Handbook for Claimants to ensure you have all the information needed for filing and to best understand your rights and responsibilities while collecting unemployment benefits. The handbook can also be found in your MiWAM account under I Want To: View Claimant Handbook.
If you make a mistake when filing or certifying, contact UIA by sending a message through your MiWAM account or by calling 1-866-500-0017.
