Workers applying for unemployment benefits can now get guidance online from trained instructors with the Michigan Unemployment Insurance Agency (UIA). These online coaching sessions will walk users through the steps they need to follow to qualify for payments.
Coaching is available Tuesdays through Fridays and time will be provided for questions. Workers can sign up at Michigan.gov/UIA for the voluntary web-based orientations. Participating in an orientation session is not required to qualify for benefits.
