How to File For Unemployment in Michigan

File using your computer

Where to claim: You can file your claim online here. You’ll be asked to create an account if you don’t already have one.

The fine print: Due to the surge of claims, Michigan is asking people to file only on certain days, depending on their last names. If your last name starts with letters A-L, file on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday; for names starting in M-Z, file on Sunday, Tuesday, or Thursday. Saturdays are for anyone.

You must have worked in Michigan during the last 12-18 months, and be unemployed or working part-time, and it must not be “your fault” that you are unemployed. Michigan has waived its normal work search requirements

What you’ll need:

  • Social security number
  • Driver’s license or ID
  • Names and addresses of employers over the last 18 months
  • Dates you started and stopped work with each employer
  • Your most recent employer’s Federal Employer ID Number and Employer Account Number
  • If you’re not a U.S. citizen, you’ll need your Alien Registration Card.
  • If you served in the military in the last 18 months, your Military DD-214 Member 4 form
