What's New

  • If you are currently participating in TIA workforce development programs or collecting unemployment benefits, the Federal government shutdown will not impact your participation or current claim for unemployment insurance benefits. Unemployment recipients must continue to certify for benefits every two weeks, conduct an active work search, and report any earnings you have while collecting benefits. For more information, including information regarding furlough guidance for federal employees, please review the Federal Government Shutdown FAQ's. If you are a federal employee and need to file for unemployment insurance benefits, visit our MILogin page for more information on how to set up your accounts.

    New Login process to access your MiWAM account

    MILogin is a new single sign on system that connects your unemployment account through the Michigan Web Account Manager (MiWAM) and your jobseeker account through Pure Michigan Talent Connect (PMTC). You must create a MILogin account before you can create or access your MiWAM account.

    Visit our MILogin page for more information on how to set up your account or how to associate your MILogin and MiWAM accounts.
