MARVIN, the Michigan Unemployment Insurance Agency's online system, can be accessed using a user name and password. The user name and password are assigned to claimants when an initial application for unemployment benefits is submitted. MARVIN's user dashboard tells claimants the status of an unemployment claim, the last payment submitted and how many weeks of benefits are available, and allows claimants to file bi-weekly claim reports.Continue Reading
Initial claims also may be filed online using the MARVIN system. Users can sign up for online services and retrieve a saved application through the online service. The MARVIN online system is available to claimants 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
MARVIN also has an automated telephone counterpart, also available at any time. Using the telephone service, claimants are required to log in using a Social Security number and four-digit Personal Identification Number. Once in the system, claimants can check the status of an unemployment application, view the last payment submitted, file a weekly claim and complete the eligibility review program if required. Claimants who have to complete the ERP are notified once logged into the system.
Claimants who have questions about the status of a claim or need additional information may need to contact a claim officer at their local unemployment office during business hours.Learn more about Social Services
