Unemployment Insurance Benefits Resources

The State of Michigan Unemployment Insurance Agency (UIA) provides unemployment benefits to eligible workers who become unemployed or under-employed through no fault of their own and meet certain other eligibility requirements. Claim and benefit eligibility is determined by the UIA.

For questions on individual claims, contact the State of Michigan UIA or another state agency. University Human Resources cannot file or answer questions about individual unemployment claims.

Reduction in Force (RIF) Status

If you are subject to a Reduction in Force, also referred to as a "RIF" or "layoff," you may wish to review Standard Practice Guide SPG 201.72 for regular staff or SPG 201.72-1 for instructional staff. Staff members subject to the terms and conditions of collective bargaining agreements may wish to consult the specific provisions in their current agreements dealing with a reduction in force.
