Michigan Unemployment Job Search Requirements
Michigan wants that you engage in an active work search for each week you are claiming unemployment benefits. You must contact a minimum of two employers per week, and report the details and results of each work search effort online or on form. Complete and submit this form on a monthly basis via mail, fax, online or an in-person visit to a Michigan Works Agency (MWA) location.
State Law further provides that your work search effort is subject to random audit. To maintain benefit eligibility, you are advised to maintain records reflecting your attempts to secure employment, e.g., copies of mailed documents, emails, and other online confirmation.
The following information must be completed on the Work Search form in order to continue to receive benefit payments.
- Week Ending Date
- Date of Contact
- Name of Employer
- Employer Address/Online Location
- Name and Title of Person Contacted
- Method of Contact
- Type of Work Applied
You must submit your completed work search online by logging into your CWAM account, which can be located on the UIA home page at http://www.michigan.gov/uia or by mailing or faxing your completed work search to:
14333 Woodrow Wilson
Detroit, MI 48238-2812
