Apply for Unemployment Benefits - Online or Phone

To help Michiganders receive unemployment benefits as a result of COVID-19, the Michigan Unemployment Insurance Agency has developed a schedule for workers to file for benefits based on the first letter of their last name. If you have access to a computer and internet you should apply online. This will free up the phone lines for people who do not have a computer or who have questions.

SEMCA is one of 16 Michigan Works! Agencies created by the state to simplify public and business access by providing necessary tools including educational training, self-help and economic development opportunities.

More than three million individuals were served in 2007 alone. Through a statewide network of over 100 Michigan Works! Service Centers, employers’ recruited qualified candidates and job seekers found life-fulfilling careers.
