  • 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. If you have already created a MILogin account through another department, you simply need to log in and link your MiWAM account before you can access your MiWAM account. Visit our MILogin page for a user guide and tutorials on how to set up your account or how to associate your MILogin and MiWAM accounts.
