Michigan Unemployment Extension
EUC (Emergency Unemployment Compensation) payments can be obtained by individuals who are unemployed through no fault of their own and meet regular state unemployment eligibility requirements.
There are 4 tiers of federally-funded EUC benefits payable in Michigan. The 10.7% reduction of the Weekly Benefit Amount will affect all 4 tiers:
- Tier 1 – Provides up to 10 weeks of EUC benefits to those who exhaust their regular state unemployment benefits and file an EUC claim on or after Sept. 9, 2012. The amount equals 54% of a person’s regular state unemployment benefits, up to 10 weeks.
- Tier 2 – Provides up to 10 weeks of EUC after a person exhausts EUC Tier 1 and equals 54% of a person’s regular state unemployment benefits, up to 10 weeks.
- Tier 3 – Provides up to 7 weeks of EUC after a person exhausts EUC Tier 2 and equals 35% of a person’s regular state unemployment benefits, up to 7 weeks.
- Tier 4 – Provides up to 7 weeks of EUC after a person exhausts EUC Tier 3 and equals 39% of a person’s regular state unemployment benefits, up to 7 weeks.
New entrants into EUC Tier 1 are needed to take part in Reemployment and Eligibility Assessment (REA) activities managed at their local Michigan Works! Agency (MWA) office. EUC claimants are required to provide written documentation of their work search efforts on a biweekly basis to the UIA before certifying through MARWIN or MARWIN Online.
Note: The EUC program expires week ending Dec. 28, 2013. This means that EUC claims for Tier 1 cannot be established after Dec. 21, 2013, and claims fir Tiers 2 through Tier 4 cannot be established after week ending Dec. 28, 2013. No EUC payments will be made for any week after Dec. 28, 2013.

Under federal law, as of 2019, EUC benefits are no longer available.
Extensions for collecting UI payments are in effect only during periods of high unemployment and only if the state or federal government take specific action to provide extended benefits.
