Recently there has been a slight change and a new Login process to access your MiWAM Account.

If you an employee who lost a job in Michigan, you may qualify for unemployment insurance benefits in Michigan state.

While unemployment benefits will not replace all your lost income, you can receive checks for a specified time to replace a percentage of your earnings while you look for a new job.

To streamline and facilitate the claim process, Michigan offers online services through the Michigan Web Account Manager (MiWAM) and the Michigan Interactive Automated Voice Response Network (MARVIN).

By using these services, you can file your initial unemployment claim and certify your unemployment and job search activities.

What are the Benefits of MiWAM login portal?

MiWAM unemployment online services allow employees to do more than certify their unemployment claims.

Through this portal, employees can verify claims, ask questions, respond to investigative inquiries, file protests, and appeals, change their contact information, make restitution payments, and submit anonymous fraud suggestions.

If you don’t have reliable internet access, you can file your unemployment claims in person at one of the state-wide unemployment offices and call MARVIN weekly to certify.

MiWam has introduced other beneficiary plans through which Michigan citizens can take advantage of. Such as:

  • Newly eligible workers who have not yet filed for unemployment benefits
    Not only those who lost their job but also Freelancers, contract workers, independent contractors, and low-wage workers have also become eligible to apply for federal benefits. The Online application is the fastest and easiest way to get these benefits. Workers must use the UIA’s daily filing schedule specified by the DOL based on their last names.
  • $600 federal payments for workers already receiving state benefits
    Workers who have already been collecting state unemployment benefits up to $362 have started receiving the federal set amount of $600 as well. These payments are disbursed at the same time as your state benefits via direct deposit or debit card after your biweekly certification.
  • All eligible workers will receive benefits
    All those applicants who are eligible for the benefits will receive them. They will accept the applications from those who have lost their job due to the influence of the pandemic in the state.
