You must be unemployed through no fault of your own, and you must have earned sufficient wages in your base period (the first 4 of the last 5 completed calendar quarters before the start date of your claim, or alternatively the last 4 quarters). Also, you must be able and available for full-time work.
You must continue to file bi-weekly (every 2 weeks). You must register for work by filing a resume in the Michigan Talent Bank, and you must go to a Michigan Works! Service Center to verify this action. Also, you must continue to be able and available for full-time work. You must actively seek employment, while keeping a record of your work search activities using the Record of Work Search form. You must make two job contacts per week. Finally, you must accept suitable work.
You must appeal within 30 calendar days from the date the decision was issued to you. Your appeal must be in writing and may be submitted by mail or by fax. Also, you should keep filing your bi-weekly claims regularly because you may only be paid for weeks you filed if you win your appeal.
