What's New

  • MILogin for Citizens


    On November 18, 2018, Pure Michigan Talent Connect (PMTC) and the Unemployment Insurance system via the Michigan Web Account Manager (MiWAM) aligned their systems with the existing MILogin for Citizens single sign-on platform to provide a seamless login experience and provide UI claimants a quick overview of claim information.

    MILogin is the new State of Michigan Identity, Credential and Access Management solution. The MILogin provides enhanced single sign-on capabilities in addition to meeting many other business requirements and security and compliance needs.

    New and existing users of PMTC and MiWAM need to register their accounts with MILogin for Citizens single sign-on as of November 18, 2108. With MILogin for Citizens, users can log in to their MiWAM and PMTC jobseeker account using the same user ID and password.  Bringing these accounts together in one place is convenient, efficient and secure, and will help Michigan citizens get back to work faster.

    Get more detailed information about the new sign-in process.

  • Updates to Go Green

    Also Coming Soon: Updates to Go Green will add more convenience and transparency. Claimants and employers will receive an acknowledgement when they opt to Go Green and receive correspondence from TIA-UI electronically. This means standard letters, forms or notices will be placed in their MiWAM account. For added convenience and efficiency, customers will receive notification by postal mail with a clear explanation of what it means to Go Green. They will also receive an email alerting them to check their account for new correspondence.
