Michigan’s job seekers receiving payments from the state’s Unemployment Insurance Agency (UIA) might have a slight delay in payments if their checks are made to an unemployment debit card or deposited directly into their bank account.

"It normally takes two to three business days for electronic payments to reach an individual's bank account or debit card," UIA Director Stephen Geskey said. "While MARVIN will accept the individual's certification, the holidays could cause processing delays by banks."

Unemployed workers are encouraged to continue contacting the UIA’s automated Michigan's Automated Response Voice Interactive Network (MARVIN) system throughout the two weeks to claim their unemployment benefits.

Michigan’s unemployed workers claiming supplemental jobless benefits must contact MARVIN by telephone or online once every two weeks to claim their unemployment benefits. When communicating with the MARVIN network, individuals must certify they continue to be unemployed and meet the eligibility requirements for unemployment benefits. 

After the MARVIN contact, benefits are normally authorized and issued on the next business day.

During the Christmas and New Year's weeks, UIA will be using the following schedule for authorizing and posting unemployment benefit payments:
