Welcome to the Unemployment Insurance Agency

  • The Unemployment Insurance Agency (UIA) operates Michigan's unemployment insurance program which collects unemployment taxes from employers and provides temporary income for workers who are unemployed through no fault of their own.

    UIA offers online services to customers through the Michigan Web Account Manager (MiWAM).

What's New

    Unemployment Insurance claimants: Due to the holiday, please allow a two to three-day delay before your benefit payment is deposited to your financial institution or loaded onto your debit card.


    • You can still file your unemployment claim online through MiWAM. 
    • If you need to report for benefits you can do so online or through MARVIN by phone.
