How to get unemployment insurance in Michigan
If you have a job and want to keep one, but you’re worried about getting unemployment insurance coverage, you may need to file a claim, a Michigan unemployment insurance official said.
It may be necessary if you’re looking to apply for a new job.
The Michigan Department of Workforce Development says it is currently reviewing applications from applicants to determine whether they qualify.
Michigan Unemployment Insurance Department spokeswoman Natalie Tarrant said in an email to CBC News that the department is not providing an update on how many people have filed for unemployment insurance since the state added unemployment insurance to its unemployment insurance rolls in September.
But, she said, “we have been tracking cases of claims.”
It’s not clear when that will happen, she added.
An unemployment insurance application requires the person to provide a copy of their Social Security number and employment history.
If you’re applying for unemployment assistance, you can also get a copy by sending an email or letter to the Unemployment Insurance agency at the address listed on the application.
A temporary worker program may be available if you can show that you are no longer looking for work and your employer has closed its doors.
You can also apply to be a temporary worker.
The agency can apply for the temporary worker’s benefits through its own online system, or you can file an application directly with the Department of Human Resources.
You must also provide your Social Security Number and other personal information to the agency.
The department will then process the application and verify your eligibility, Tarrandt said.
You should expect to receive your benefits within two weeks, Tarcant said.
“If you are receiving unemployment benefits you can request that they be delayed,” she said.
In October, the Michigan Department found more than 10,000 applications for unemployment compensation from people looking for a job but were unable to find work because of their unemployment status.
Those applications could have been eligible for the state’s temporary worker and work study programs.
In March, the agency said that 1,400 people applied for unemployment benefits in the last week of October.
“The state has been able to track the number of applications filed since then, which we believe indicates a continuing rise in applications,” Tarrat said.
For people who have been out of work for more than a year, they are eligible for unemployment disability benefits.
The unemployment insurance department has been keeping track of unemployment benefits claims since the end of November.
Tarcandt did not give an update as to how many claims were filed since the last update.
“We are actively working to determine the number and number of claims that have been filed in the past week,” she told CBC News.
She added that applications were being reviewed to determine if they are appropriate for benefits.
“However, as of October 1, we have not seen any new cases of claimants,” she wrote.
